When a local firm needed to expand, interior renovation allowed a modern office to emerge from a historic building.

Due to rapid growth and a shortage of additional space at their Manheim Township location, Trout CPA returned to downtown Lancaster nearly 50 years after leaving the city. Their newest location at 158-160 E. King Street is located around the corner from where the company began in 1929.

Restoring A Piece of History

During the 13,000 square foot renovations, Trout CPA wanted to maintain the building’s rich history. A comprehensive interior renovation process was integral to the space restoration. The original tin ceiling was first on the list for preservation. Workers carefully removed and repainted the intricate tiles. Afterwards, the ceiling was reinstalled along with the existing trim and mouldings.

In the employee bistro/common area that looks out over King Street, a portion of the wall was covered in real brick. RLPS met with a manufacturer to match the interior brick with the outside of the building to provide a cohesive look. Area rugs in a neutral pattern provide noise dampening.
