Adaptive Reuse in Pittsburgh, PA at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Pittsburgh

Building History

The large 208,520 sq. ft. brick building was built in 1907 and served as the headquarters of the Pittsburgh Gage & Supply Company for most of its history, though it was briefly used as a storage area for Allegheny County's voting machines. The Pittsburgh Gage and Supply Company would eventually evolve into The Gage Company Inc. which was acquired by Redlon & Johnson and then finally Ferguson Enterprises Inc. in 2015. The Gage Company operated as a wholesale distributor of plumbing pipes, valves, fittings, and industrial products to professional contractors. The company was founded in 1887 and is currently based in Portland, Maine. 

U-Haul acquired the historic building in 2012 and preserved it for future generations. 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.
