Historic Dewey House (c. 1827) at Smith College needed significant upgrades. After completing an initial feasibility study, Kraus Fitch Architects was asked to complete full services for energy improvements, aesthetic upgrades, and a new exterior lift. Working with energy consultants, the team conducted blower door and infrared testing to ultimately achieve a 65% reduction in air infiltration.

This project received a 2013 Historic Preservation Award from the Northampton Historical Commission.
