The scope included site planning, a new arrival sequence and lobby, improved circulation, new elevator, structural and building envelope upgrades, updated building MEP/FP systems, as well as LEED Administration. Dyer Brown also designed office suites for two building tenants.
A new two story glass entry with steel canopy welcomes visitors to the renovated building. Inside, new steel vertical circulation and railing systems contrast against monolithic brick walls, some of which have been painted a bright goldenrod.
Upgrading the site and building systems to meet LEED-NC requirements consumed a significant portion of the budget, so the design emphasizes the building's raw industrial character, including the dramatic window line, abundant natural light, original wood floors, and open rafter ceilings.
