This project involves the complete exterior and interior renovation of a 4-story historic structure in downtown Jacksonville.  Since the structure will remain occupied throughout the process which includes complete demolition of all interior partitions, a detailed design and phasing plan was developed to minimize disturbance to the Client’s business.

All spaces within the structure were redesigned to reflect the growth that had occurred as well as and changes in internal operations.  Additionally, the entire skin of the building was restored including cleaning and patching masonry, replacing aluminum storefront windows, and replacing the roof.

The building, originally constructed in 1912 as a Kress Department Store, features a 3-story atrium which provides abundant natural light to all employees.

This project represents the individual experience of Tom Hurst

We hired Tom Hurst to be the principal architect for the renovation project for The Law Office of Farah and Farah.

This project was an extremely difficult one in that we were completely renovating a building that was over 100 years old. When selecting an architect we wanted someone with a strong attention to detail, the ability to recognize and mitigate potential challenges, and someone who understood our vision. The vision for this project was taking an old building and giving it a fresh, modern look while staying within our budget. Tom understood our vision and worked diligently to put it into action. Tom, with his meticulous eye for detail, recognized and understood our needs. He did everything in his power to assist the owner in combating change orders and cost overruns
