With the firm expanding in recent years, renovations were needed to create additional office space, and to provide updated office amenities and collaboration spaces. 1019 Cameron St, built in 1908, was the home of an Armour & Company meat packing facility until Bob Pizzano Sr. purchased the building in 1972. With such an interesting history and unique features (meat hooks hanging from the rafters, stacked freezer rooms with existing 12" steel door frames, etc) we decided to peel the building back to its original open plan and expose all its quirks.
As contractors, we appreciate raw materials. Rough masonry openings, exposed hundred-year-old brick, raw steel, and hand-scraped hardwood floors feature throughout the building. Glass offices and conference rooms were added, along with upgraded and added windows. The facade of the building was refreshed, with new awning over the deck, steel and glass entry, signage, and paint.
We're proud of the work we did at our headquarters, building for the future while maintaining the character of our historic property. Stop by and we'll show you around!
