Summit Construction was the Construction Manager at Risk for the adaptive revitalization of the historic Hoover Company manufacturing complex. The project components require careful preservation of the manufacturing facility's phased additions from 1916 through 1969. The unique design-build delivery historically preserved the classic brick masonry, while replacing existing systems with energy efficient window units. New energy efficient lighting replaced the tired manufacturing luminaries.
The energy saving mechanical units increased the overall comfort in the building as they replaced existing cooling towers, boilers and pumps. The major electrical, water and natural gas distribution was converted from manufacturing high demand and power factor to a commercial/residential demand using less energy.
Additionally, all doors, windows and door hardware were replaced while providing a new interior courtyard space and indoor parking for the future tenants.
