An existing, approximately 17,000 SF metal foundry, is being renovated for a new use. The buildings existing heavy timber classification is being upheld and a new CLT floor structure with glulam columns and girders will replace existing joists and subfloor. All existing windows, skylights and clerestory are being replaced or restored, and two new skylights added to maximize natural light in all spaces. Insulation is added to the exterior at both walls and roof to expose existing brick walls, heavy timber trusses and roof joists.
The project began construction in January 2019 and is expected to open January 2020.
