Worked with new owner Fred Durham, and Ben from Studio Kremer Architects renovating and updating the buildings to be ready to house new businesses. Finished out 108 for Durham Labs. Also worked on other spaces for restaurant, bar, office space and 2 bedroom apartment. All Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing systems are brand new. Ready for the next 100 years.
Worked with the partners to redesign the reception area, dress up the conference rooms and expand into new space. Both existing and new were updated with fresh paint and new carpet. We worked with them to remain open and do the work in three planed phases.
We worked with Jeff at Architectural Artisans to replace dated ceiling tiles with custom fabric acoustical panels. All the walls were freshened up with a lot of sanding and some new paint. We added some poplar panels on a bare wall to match the horizontal design of the original walls. Lighting was also updated to LED fixtures.
At 1346 River Road next to Stop Light Liquors, we worked with Susan Seiller to create this unique space to house her new concept. All the finishes were worked out as the Job progressed. We helped out by fabricating and installing all the poplar casework. It is a showplace and we are proud to have been a part of this venture.
At Sullivan University we completely remodeled one of their teaching kitchens back to the studs and created this lab where students can “plate up” and show off all that they have learned in their time at Sullivan. It is set up like the cooking line in a restaurant with multiple stations. 3 week Project start to finish!
We worked with the owner to get the best possible prices in and then drew up an aggressive schedule that completed the project from start to finish in less than 4 weeks. We had to have all our inspections passed so the owner could get his License in time to relocate from across the way before the end of the month.
