Freight House Renovation

Freight House Renovation

The Historic Freight House was originally constructed in the 1930’s and utilized as a freight terminal for Northwestern Railroad Company. The renovation of this historic building consisted of completely removing the interior finishes that remained from a prior owner using the building as a restaurant. The building footprint is approximately 11,000 square feet. The renovation scope of work included casting a new concrete floor over the entire interior space of the facility, new roof, windows, concrete stoops and handicap ramps, and custom railings. The south elevation of the building was reconstructed with large windows to mimic open freight doors and metal wall panels to appear as closed freight doors. Approximately 7,000 square feet of the building was converted to attorney offices with open work areas, conference room, twelve individual offices, break room, staff restroom and shower area, and storage room. The majority of the finishes are carpet, acoustical tile ceilings, and painted gypsum board walls and ceilings. Many of the original bow string wood trusses were left exposed to accent the main work area of the space. Approximately 1,000 square feet of the building is designated common bathrooms, entrance area, mechanical room, and janitor space.
