HISTORIC TAX CREDIT PROJECT EXPERIENCE BKV Group has significant experience planning and designing historic building renovations and re-purposing including government, corporate and residential buildings. Our staff understands the permanence of historic buildings and works closely with clients to translate technical issues into clear, understandable building options.
EXPERIENCE WITH HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSIONS, REVIEW BOARDS & CONSULTANTS BKV Group has completed numerous projects in cooperation with various Historic Preservation Commissions, Review Boards & consultants and understands the need to maintain a building’s historical context, especially in areas where these buildings are contributing structures. We work with residents, property owners, community and neighborhood associations, and the preservation societies, undertaking reconnaissancelevel surveys of those neighborhoods outside of the existing site. The construction assemblies for renovation projects can take on numerous characteristics to provide noise mitigation and sound attenuation measures. On previous projects, BKV Group has worked closely with acoustic consultants to design cost effective and successful performance-based construction assemblies while maintaining most of the original characteristics of the historic structure. We continually investigate ways to improve the construction techniques for floor assemblies, roof assemblies, party walls and corridor walls. When federal and state tax credits are pursued, we often recommend the addition of a historic consultant to procure the various written submittals required for the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) and the Department of the Interior’s National Park Service (NPS). We work closely with historic consultants to gain the support and approvals from SHPO and NPS. BKV Group provides the necessary building documentation to assure that Part 1, Part 2 and final Part 3 historic designation requirements are fulfilled in order to obtain tax credits.

HOTEL KADDATZ ARTIST LOFTS FERGUS FALLS, MINNESOTA Originally built in 1915, the National Register of Historic Places-listed Hotel Kaddatz was Fergus Falls’ leading hotel. Standing vacant since 1975, it re-opened in 2004 in the heart of Fergus Falls’ Central Business District, bringing new life to the downtown. The Hotel Kaddatz project created 10 units of mixed income housing, 4,200 Sf of commercial space on the ground floor, and 6,000 SF of community arts center space in the basement. It has six one-bedroom and four twobedroom units. This mix was chosen to meet the housing needs identified by a market survey of artist households in the Fergus Falls area. The project serves a mix of young and middle-age singles and couples. The two-bedroom units provide housing suitable for families with children. The project provides an elevator serving all levels of the build, making all units accessible to persons with physical disabilities. Of the $2.3 million project budget, about $1.5 million was applied to residential rehabilitation of the structure. The remaining $800,000 was allocated to non-residential uses, including restoration of the grand staircase that originally connected the main floor to the residential floors above, and extended it to connect to the community art center space on the lower level. Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. has honored Hotel Kaddatz with the 2005 Award of Excellence in Construction - Historical Restoration over $1 million.
