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

Building History

The Tri State Gas and Supply Company building was built in 1954. U-Haul acquired the historical building in 1979. 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.
