Is adaptive reuse a form of rehabilitation?

    Hi Munira,

    Historic Preservation is definitely not my area of expertise, but this website should be helpful.

    There are links on the left with individual pages describing each - Preservation, Rehab, Restoration & Reconstruction.

    I think it's important to understand that these 4 terms are used for defining grants from the government, for public buildings. Otherwise, with a privately funded project, it does not matter.  An adaptive reuse of a building that is not being used for the public's benefit, would not qualify for the funding.

    Hope you find this helpful.
