Smith Block Historic Renovation

Bremik Construction completed the historic renovation of the Smith Block that combined three masonry and heavy timber buildings into one, 25,000 sf corporate office. Originally built in 1872, the renovation included a full seismic upgrade, new building systems, and custom wood windows built in an adjacent, occupied building. Sustainable features included multi-level light wells to maximize natural light and achieve a Green Globes rating. The client’s 20% DMWESB utilization goal was exceeded with 22% total participation.
