Bloedorn Lumber Corporate Office

This project is currently under construction and involves transforming this existing building that once served as a financial facility, into a fully functional corporate office space for Bloedorn Lumber Company. This building was originally constructed in the early 1970’s, and is in the heart of downtown Torrington. This project presented an interesting challenge in that the basement, although large, had low ceilings. The ceiling height was only 7’-2”, which left little room for the mechanical and electrical upgrades that were needed in this building. To overcome this challenge and add valuable square-footage to the building, the basement floor was lowered to allow this space to not only be functional, but also more comfortable.

To improve the aesthetics of the exterior of the building, the existing brick façade is overlain with EIFS and synthetic stone, while arches and stone accents were added to the exterior to compliment the surrounding downtown architectural atmosphere.
