Adaptive Reuse in Rochester Hills, MI at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Rochester

Building History

Berkley Screw Machine Products is a 53 year old family owned machine shop with a history of being a leading producer of specialty machined components for a variety of industrial applications. The former Berkley Screw Machine Products building was built in 1946 and U-Haul acquired the building in 2013 to preserve the building and establish a U-Haul retail center that offers truck and trailer sharing. Adaptive reuse building conversions allow U-Haul to promote infill development to meet citizens’ needs while preserving the natural resources and land normally required for new construction. Adaptive reuse also allows resources to be focused on integrating environmentally thoughtful features into the existing building rather than creating waste in the form of demolition and using valuable resources for new construction.
