Abstract
This report examines the characteristics that hinder or facilitate the success of a surplus school to residential conversion in Hamilton, Ontario. This topic is especially relevant as many of the city's schools are likely to be declared surplus in the coming years, a number of which represent unique heritage building stock. The value in examining the completed adaptive school reuse projects in the city is that it can provide valuable insight into how the process currently functions and how it can be improved upon.
