This project involved the renovation and upgrade of this historic building containing Class A office and retail space in downtown Columbus.
The scope of work included the placement of a new building infill section within the existing light well. The new space houses mechanical rooms and leasable tenant space on alternating floors. The existing common areas and bathrooms were also upgraded, and new ADA compliant restroom facilities were added.
Additional scope items included stair pressurization/life safety work, window replacement and restoration of the building’s limestone exterior.
In an effort to minimize the impact of this work on the building’s tenants, Smoot Construction created swing space while the work was being completed in occupied areas. In addition, some of the work was performed at night so as not to disrupt daily operations.
