Eyes Optometry Office


Winner of the Ellsworth Area Chamber of Commerce Revitalization Award.



Renovating an existing building can be a cost-effective way to procure a new facility, but there are factors that need to be considered. Due diligence regarding the suitability of a specific building should include an assessment of structural, envelope, foundation and site factors.  Major upgrades to these systems will add to the cost of a renovation project.

For this optometry office renovation project, we worked with the owners to confirm that the existing building would meet the space requirements of their three-doctor practice.

We also provided energy efficiency upgrades to the building envelope, and replaced the roof and the mechanical system.

We designed custom casework for the frame display area and helped the owners with furniture selection in order to provide a consistent look throughout the facility.
