Marketing agency R&R Partners purchased the building located in the historic warehouse district at Second and Buchanan Streets. The intention was to convert the warehouse into office space and relocate their Phoenix-based operations at the new facility. When the time came to start considering the build-out there were some structural challenges that needed to be overcome.
Ceiling trusses and exterior masonry walls were failing. The 25,000 SF building needed extensive structural repair work and the team of CCBG Architects, Slaysman Engineering and Robert Porter Construction were put to task.
Because of the historical classification of the building the restoration process involved meeting strict standards to preserve the original design and structural elements and the overall historical integrity of the building.
Scope of work included:
Wood truss rehab using a “sister” truss system built along side the existing broken trusses
Exterior wall support system
Concrete floor penetrations and slab removal to allow for basement access
Interior renovations and architectural finishes
