Would it be more appropriate to use sector 38 (new construction commercial) for a wall to wall complete and total gut reconstruction of a historic building, rather than sector 43 (maintenance/repair non-res bld)?

  • I think I would be tempted to use 35 Residential remodeling and alterations, particularly if you have data to edit the payroll and employment in the study area data.

  • It is a 100 year old theatre building on Baltimore's west side that has stood vacant for 30 years. It is going to be ripped out wall to wall/ground to roof and essentially rebuilt as a new 350 seat theatre on the inside, though the exterior walls will remain to retain the exterior image. It is a $17 million project. However, as this model projects into the future (this is still a project of paper) payroll and employment would simply be my (and the contractors) best guess. In my possession I only have a detailed construction budget at this time. Do you still think it is a good idea to try to use sector 35? Thanks.

  • My thinking is that there is much more groundwork (bulldozing, sewer, water) involved with new structures, but there is more stonework/steel with institutional buildings than with residential. Kind of pick your poison. I suggest you look at the production function for both (Reports/Social accounts/industry balance sheet) and see if one makes more sense than the other. I suspect considering the stone and steel the institutional new construction will appeal more. Groundwork is mostly heavy equipment rental and repair.
