EXCELLENCE AWARD FOR COMMERCIAL – RETAIL RENOVATION
This project involved a major upgrade to an aging strip mall in downtown Sidney. Facing three streets in a highly visible area, particular attention was paid to exterior design elements and cladding, finishes, lighting, signage and the incorporation of historic photos onto the façade. A large steel arch was constructed to direct the public to the entry courtyard, and major upgrades including a raised patio were constructed on Bevan Avenue. A substantial amount of the upgrade dealt with energy conservation, including new HVAC rooftop units, roof insulation to R40 standards, and an exterior wall insulation/stucco panel system to R30 standards.
