Brewery / Non-Combustible Steel
Santa Cruz, CA
The original Homespace+Workspace retail store burned down in 2009. This client came to EcoSteel seeking to build a custom commercial brewery with fire resistant materials, but also sought a visually pleasing retail space be achieved using EcoSteel’s commercial and industrial methods and materials.
The result is a 10,340 square foot steel fire-safe building complete with 2HR fire rated panels. To ensure this project remains on budget, interior structural elements were left exposed. The back interior faces of our pre-insulated steel panels were also left exposed to shave cost and provide a unique and interesting interior look. EcoSteel will overlay this project’s MEP plans with our BIM 3D modeling to ensure elegant integration.
This client also chose EcoSteel because of our Revit 3D modeling capabilities. It was important to easily make design changes early in the process in a virtual environment to ensure the client’s design desires were met.
