Rio at Las Estancias is a 58,000 sf long-term care and rehabilitation center near Coors and Rio Bravo SW. The $13 million Project includes 120 beds and is a joint venture of Albuquerque-based On Pointe Health and developer Cauwels & Stuve Realty & Development Advisors, with Enterprise Builders Corporation serving as the general contractor. The property has 80 beds for long-term skilled nursing care and 40 private rooms for short term post-surgery recovery. The façade massing and interplay of color creates a residential feel rather than the institutional appearance common to this facility type. Designed with 4 wings radiating from a center core, the facility boasts resort-like finishes and amenities such as coffee bistro, movie theater room, dining area with world class chef, and shared soft seating areas with views to the surrounding fields and mountains. There is a large central physical and occupational therapy room in an up-beat and upmarket setting. The pin-wheels design allows for maximum visual contact with the lovely south valley surroundings, skylights, borrow lights, and large windows provide a bright and inviting setting. This project greatly benefits the community with 120 new, well-compensated jobs and much of the staff recruited from the nearby area. Proudly, Enterprise Builders’ woodwork shop completed all of architectural millwork the facility.

Traditional business meets modern thinking.
A distinct challenge came to Enterprise Builders in the form of the AS Horner buildings, located on a remote piece of land just south of Albuquerque. The project consisted of an 18,000 square foot office building coupled with a 17,000 square foot warehouse. On top of the structures, strict attention had to be paid to bringing utilities to the site. The location called for the redirection of water and electricity from up to a half-mile from the site. The office building exterior utilizes many different building materials, including stucco, metal panels, cement board panels, polycarbonate panels, steel, and aluminum storefront, along with vertical sun shades constructed from left over steel bridge grates that the owner provided. This project's success can be tied to the shared vision of the owner and architect for this modern and forward thinking design coming to fruition with the completion of this building. The look of the building itself, the views of the city and the surrounding mountains, and the functionality of the space have created a very successful project.

The Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless was built from the ground up with Wright and Hammer Architects as the designers on the expansion while Enterprise Builders Corporation constructed the project. This 8,700sf two-story building is located across the street from their existing campus, on the northeast corner of First Street and Mountain Road.
The design of this building was centered on making a difference in our homeless community by promoting independence and dignity. This space includes medical exam rooms, a coffee bar, office space, counseling rooms, large conference rooms and private shower areas complete with secure storage for clients. The new area is decorated with neutral tones paired with bursts of orange and welcomes light throughout an open floor plan. Polished concrete flooring was used throughout the building as well as floating clouds suspended from the ceiling.
Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless currently serves around 7,000 patients per year and this expansion will give them the space and resources necessary to expand their medical, mental health and basic needs services to better serve our Albuquerque community.

APS’s Atrisco Elementary is a bilingual K-5 school tucked away in Albuquerque’s South Valley. Their existing campus had a need for classroom consolidation and collaborative learning spaces. These needs were met with a 39,990sf addition to their existing campus, which provided a modernized kitchen and cafeteria, while also creating space for 14 general classrooms, 3 special use classrooms, an art/music room, administrative suites and support offices.
The new design created an integrated learning environment by linking all classrooms, once separated, under one roof and by constructing large halls that can house groups of students to encourage collaboration, and also maintain access control. The new classrooms incorporate connecting double doors in order to accommodate team teaching. Other classroom features include cubbies, clerstory windows to boost daylight, tackable surfaces that double for acoustic attenuation, and a spectrum of vibrant accent walls.
The project also included extensive sitework comprised of demolition of non-operational outlier classrooms, relocation of utilities, and a new parking lot and drainage system. Exterior aesthetic improvements included a new synthetic turf field and updated landscaping.
This project was originally slated to achieve LEED Silver Certification, however, the efforts put forth by the design team and contractors elevated it to LEED Gold. This was done by incorporating sustainable design strategies including: high performing HVAC system, low flow plumbing fixtures, LED lighting, high performance glazing, increased acoustic attenuation, photo-voltaic energy production panels and increased building insulation. These strategies were combined with shading devices to maximize natural light, reduce electrical lighting, and reduce the cooling load on the building. Altogether, 90% of addition's space is filled with natural daylighting.

Bernalillo Academy Residential Treatment Center, located at 1801 Randolph Road SE, is an 83,500 sq. ft. is a three-story building which was a part of a larger campus of approximately 22.6 acres with four office buildings constructed in various phases between 1980 and 1988. The existing building was designed for office-type use with private and open office areas around a three-story atrium space, making it suitable for single tenant occupancy.
The improvements to accommodate the Bernalillo Academy included an interior renovation of approximately 80% of the spaces on all floors with change of occupancy classification, upgrades to building HVAC, electrical and fire protection systems along with other ADA improvements. The sitework included converting the majority of the existing parking lot south of the building into several fenced play areas for the children – separated for age and activity levels. Bernalillo Academy is the only organization and facility of its kind in both the City of Albuquerque and the State of New Mexico that provides sub-acute residential treatment to children ages 4 through 18 who have severe Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Developmental Delays (DD), neurobehavioral disorders or neurodevelopmental disorders. Bernalillo Academy is accredited by The Joint Commission (TIC) and licensed through the State of New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD).
The overall design strategy effectively converted office-type spaces for new use and occupancy classification, and to provide a calming, safe, secure, and supportive built environment for children, families and staff. Our team accomplished that by:
Additional Special Features:
Quiet / Personal Sensory Rooms – An intimately sized room adjacent to each learning or activity area allows easy access for staff to provide a quiet, safe zone for the children when needed without leaving the main area. Color changing LED light fixtures are included to provide an environment where children can control their own light levels, if desired, and is used to calm a child who is having a challenging time. Children have a place to further control their own intimate environment by manipulating other sensory features such as sound and music; to include preferred objects such as books, toys, games, and preferred seating and enclosures. This strategy has proven very successful and APS is now including this feature in all of their learning environments for students with special needs.

Bernalillo Elementary serves grades 3 thru 5 and was constructed in a residential neighborhood in Bernalillo, NM next to the District’s existing Middle School to create one unified campus. It offers an age appropriate adjacency to both schools and allows for shared use of facilities including the bus drop-off, playfields and parking. The available site for the new school was split by an existing irrigation acequia and thus restricted the campus’ buildable area. Therefore, the development of a two-story classroom scheme was essential for the project’s constructability. The two-story facility allowed for a very compact footprint enhancing the efficiency of the building in both usable space and energy consumption.

Planning and dedication leads to a neighborhood’s revival. The Bricklight Courtyards is a 45,000 square foot mixed use development located in Albuquerque's University Area. Bricklight consists of 7,200 square feet of retail space and 46 residential apartments distributed throughout four buildings, which are separated from one another by courtyards. Each building has retail space along the street with the residential units behind and above.
Two colors of brick were used on the street facades, and four colors of stucco delineate the retail spaces from each residential units and each building level.
The materials and colors provide an updated version of those found in the immediate vicinity, without appearing trendy. The interiors of the residential unit are unsurpassed in the rental market. The open floor plans provide ultimate lifestyle flexibility, tenants can select from four individual interior color schemes, which include a variety of attractive materials including solid surface countertops, glass tile backsplashes and contemporary lighting.
A series of factors came together to make Bricklight the crown jewel of Harvard Drive. Nearly three years of planning and partnership between the owners, architect, builders, neighborhood association and city allowed for the anticipation and mitigation of many challenges. In the end, this mixed-use development serves as an example of how an owner’s vision combined with the right partnerships can revitalize a neighborhood.

In 2010 Enterprise Builders Corporation completed the renovation/addition of Carlos Gilbert Elementary, a historical educational facility in the heart of Santa Fe’s downtown area. This school was originally built in 1942 and after serving thousands of students throughout the decades, it was in dire need of a facelift and more space to accommodate the growing population. EB added 7,500 sf to the existing structure to make room for a new library and additional kitchen space. The interior design of Carlos Gilbert is reflective of the era in which the original building was built. Such accents are apparent in the intricate woodwork, Ernest Thompson Furniture, decorative doors/frames, and stunning lighting fixtures that make up the 1940’s traditional New Mexican décor.

A simple building on a wind-swept mesa is the new spiritual home and headquarters for The Order of Franciscans, Province of Casa Guadalupe Franciscan Friary, the first European settlers of North America. As the Curia for this Province, this friary houses the Order’s Head Provincial who still administers the religious affairs of this region’s centuries–old Franciscan missions, located principally in Native American lands.
The Friars desired to create an inward focused monastic environment for peace and meditation, yet, from within the walls of this cloistered compound, this extraordinary site high up on the West Mesa affords breathtaking views of the entire Middle Rio Grande Valley, the City of Albuquerque, and the Sandia and Manzano Mountain ranges.
The friary has two sections. The east wing is a more common area with a living room, a dining room and kitchen. This area opens up to a large portal with an outdoor fireplace and a beautifully landscaped courtyard. The 12 friars each have their own private residential spaces, which make up the west wing. Also in this wing is a vaulting Chapel where the friars perform their daily devotions.
Special attention was paid to the colors, materials and elemental design that were used in the construction of this beautiful building. Engraved in the long benches that line the courtyard walls are words and phrases in Latin such as Pax et Bonum, which means Peace and Beauty, the greeting of St. Francis. Another, more private interior courtyard in the center of the friary is of a rose color representing the symbol of this Order, the Catilian rose of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Even the Chapel’s alter wall is a Venetian plaster colored wall in “Blood of Christ red.” The exterior walls are in the same shade of brown as the traditional friar robe. Other accent colors were chosen to represent the Native American cultures

Desert Willow Family School is an alternative K-8 school that combines classroom instruction with home-based instruction. Their existing campus had a need for more classrooms and collaborative work spaces. These needs were met with a 16,090sf addition to their existing campus. This addition boasts a multi-purpose room, 7 general classrooms, 1 lecture room, administrative offices, kiln, restrooms, and support areas.
The new design is intended to meet the goals of the staff and students by creating an integrated learning environment. This was done by linking classrooms with teacher workrooms, and providing movable partitions inside the classrooms so they can be reconfigured based on the instructor (teachers share classrooms due to type of hybrid school program). Other classroom features include custom casework, windows to boost daylight, tackable surfaces that double for acoustic attenuation, tubular skylights, and a spectrum of vibrant accent walls.
Beautiful Northern New Mexico Architectural features decorate the exterior including pitched dormer windows, aluminum accents, exposed beams and a metal roof. This addition was meant to look like a single build, single campus; meaning the transition from the existing building to addition was intended to appear seamless. The project team worked meticulously to match all existing exterior finishes and successfully completed the outcome desired by the client. Additionally, security upgrades were of prime concern during the design of the campus addition. The project team enclosed the campus with gates to control access and added security cameras and prepared the site for a new playground, which was installed by an APS vendor.
ENMRSH is a new building in Clovis, NM providing daytime care for adults with disabilities. This new facility sits adjacent to their existing campus and allows the non-profit organization to expand adult services. ENMRSH serves the Curry, De Baca, Roosevelt and Guadalupe counties, while working closely with the State of New Mexico Department of Health Developmental Disabilities Support Division to empower adults to become independent, employable and comfortable in their living conditions.
This project created a fluid and open floorplan complete with a learning kitchen, fitness room, tech areas, large activity space, sensory room and an inviting common area that is collaborative and relaxed. The space boasts administrative offices, medical stations for nurses, conference rooms and break areas for staff. Enterprise Builders worked closely with Dekker/Perich/Sabatini to build outdoor gardening boxes to allow those in wheelchairs to garden while enjoying an enclosed patio and all of its amenities.
Enterprise Builders’ cabinet shop provided the woodwork and cabinets for this project.

What was once a distraught building left in shambles and on the verge complete deterioration, came a remodeled multi-use retail space. Consisting of 16,250 sf, the First Financial Credit Union Juan Tabo Branch is spectacularly different than any other nearby structure. With exterior décor reflective of a New England street view and accented with low hanging awnings and foam pop out trim, this building gives the Snowheights neighborhood a taste of the northeastern United States. It truly adds to the vitality of the neighborhood in an older Albuquerque area, and is among one of the several renovated buildings in this area. However, the First Financial Credit Union space stands out with its unique design and is attractive to several tenants looking to move into a building that does not fit the “southwest stucco mold”.

Emerging from Albuquerque’s southeast quadrant is the up-and-coming suburban community, Mesa Del Sol. Blooming with new life, this area currently serves as a hub for much of Albuquerque’s incoming commerce and will soon offer upscale living at affordable prices. Enterprise Builders Corporation, along with Page Southerland Page Architects (Austin, TX), recently added to the rapidly growing business district with the Design/Assist construction of the GSA Building . New construction of the GSA facility consisted of nearly 75,000 sf of sustainable space.
SHELL To give the building a “natural stone” appearance, our team introduced a new form of exterior finish to New Mexico by using Thermocromex, a durable limestone based product superior to stucco or EFIS. Thermocromex is designed to be a high performance cladding with a life expectancy exceeding 100 years and a proven record to resist weathering and fading. To assist with the external aesthetics, wood beams and aluminum “trees” were placed near windows and across walkways to provide blockage from the sun yet still maintain an organic appeal.
COURTYARD This building surrounds an exposed courtyard, making this natural environment the focal point and inspiration for the building’s design features. With suspended wood beams floating high above and the calming atmosphere full of blossoming vegetation, this area is not only exquisitely beautiful but serves as an outdoor oasis for employees and guests.
SUSTAINABLY STUNNING Our team designed this facility to adhere to the highest “green” standards and we are currently pending a USGBC LEED Silver rating. We included low VDC materials, water efficient landscaping with storm water design, lighting fixtures with timer control, heat island, Dakin HVAC system, low flow toilets and many more sustainable amenities. Interior finishes are complimentary of the natural atmosphere we intended to capture with our design. We used a variety of finishing materials with low VDC including polished concrete, carpet, rubber flooring in the gym area, a stunning array of paint colors and custom cabinets completed by Enterprise Builders’ cabinetry shop.

Enterprise Builders Corporation collaborated with Cauwels & Stuve Realty & Development Advisors on a design build project that would eventually become the new home to both firms. The goal was to create a unique office space that could be enjoyed by both companies, yet still provide each of the tenants with custom designs suitable to their business needs. Collectively, the team formed a 22,800 sf office space with shared restrooms, gym, sauna and a large floating mezzanine to be used a joint conference area. The construction process consisted of a large scale demolition, including the infill of an Olympic-size swimming pool and 20’ diameter hot tub. The renovation made use of the unique features in the former pool area and created a one of a kind office environment by retaining the high ceiling glue-lam beams to house modern partition offices and “floating” conference rooms. Industrial design elements such as exposed ductwork, suspended lighting fixtures and 10’ diameter fans were used to create contemporary look and feel. One of the great accomplishments of this process is that we were able to fuse two styles together to create a vibrantly colorful, contemporary ambiance on the Enterprise Builders side, and a warm, soothing traditional atmosphere on the Cauwels & Stuve side. We tied the two styles together by accentuating the industrial details of the overall space.

This project was an interior remodel of space previously occupied by Dekker/Perich/Sabatini. The building was purchased by a group of investors headed by Maestas & Ward, as a new location for their offices as well as Prime Properties, their property management branch. Maestas & Ward decided to take the easternmost 8,000 s.f. of the building and lease or sell the remainder. As one of the premier commercial real estate firms in the region, Maestas & Ward wanted to project an image of contemporary sophistication without being trendy or pretentious. The layout is a combination of open office areas and enclosed offices and in order to bring natural light into the innermost core of the space, the enclosed offices were situated toward the interior, with the open office areas at the perimeter. Daylight filters through the open areas and through the glass fronts at the enclosed offices. Light/sound baffles are suspended in the curved vaulted ceiling that runs the length of the building. These maple panels control sunlight that enters through the south facing clerestory windows, and through the use of butt-glazed glass at the top of the lobby and conference room walls, they draw one’s eye through the entire length of the space. Another feature is the bank of ‘phone booths’ that allow for private telephone conversations in an open office environment. All of the work on this project was interior, with the exception of the patio that was constructed into the face of an existing berm at the east end of the building. The patio is approximately 4’ below the adjacent street, which allows the surrounding masonry wall to provide a visual and sound buffer for the patio.

New Covenant Church had been located at 7200 Paseo Del Norte for several years in the former YWCA building. They began considering the need for a larger facility about 5 years ago, and after a few years of going back and forth on whether to remodel and add onto the existing building or build an entirely new church on the land they owned directly west of the existing building, it was decided to pursue the latter. EPC approval was obtained as a three phased project, the first of which was the worship center and associated spaces, and future phases include an office and fellowship wing to the east and a classroom wing to the north. The worship center was designed to seat 650 people with an adjacent chapel that could be used in conjunction with worship center functions as well as smaller independent activities such as weddings. The architecture is a contemporary interpretation of northern New Mexico religious architecture, which is expressed through massing and the use of corrugated metal roofing.

North Domingo Baca Multigenerational Center Phase 1 was completed in Spring 2011. The construction process began with the site development of 5.5 acres of land in the northeast quadrant of Albuquerque. We completed the utility work and set forth to complete the rest of the building to include sustainable alternatives. This building is currently pending a USGBC LEED Gold Certification and showcases the following unique Green features: • Geo Exchange Heating/Cooling System- A special hybrid HVAC system was designed to produce hot/cold air by using the ground. Enterprise Builders created 64 wells, 250 feet below ground, to source the Geo Exchange System. This system is incredibly unique because it an efficient hybrid between Loop Field, Dakin System and a boiler that minimizes energy and maximizes efficiency. • GrassCrete- A walkway system allowing water to percolate into the concrete so it can used for watering. It’s a stunning landscape architecture feature and great way to collect water. • Solar Screening- Large solar screens were placed on the exterior windows of the building to block solar gain and reduce heat gain/loss. Additionally, in an effort to continue to reduce heat gain/loss insulation was placed internally and externally. Not only does North Domingo Baca provide sustainable details, but we also used top of the line finishes to give the building a beautiful modern touch infused with traditional New Mexico style and industrial aspects. We used bamboo flooring, polished concrete floors, rubber flooring, recycled steel, NANA doors, accordion overhead partitions, reusable/recyclable materials and rusted steel paint for our unique finishing touches. All fixtures used in this project were low VOC and LEED certified. We integrated LED control lighting, low-flow toilets and solar screens into sustainable design.

Furniture and accents were designed to fit perfectly in this space and allow room for expansion.
Enterprise Builders completed all the custom woodwork in the suite. We designed and created wood accent panels that can be seen on the ceilings, and on decorative walls throughout the building. Enterprise Builders completed all of the custom casework in this dental office and coordinated with their medical sales representative to make certain every tool had an appropriate place. We used laminate cabinets and hardwood for all accent pieces.

This intricate renovation tested the walls of time, as we completed an infrastructure upgrade within the confines of the 1960’s section of the Presbyterian Main Hospital. Floor by floor, we extracted existing HVAC ducts, plumbing pipes and electrical conduits and replaced them with modern alternatives. This upgrade also integrated the modernization of all four elevator shafts on each of the levels. The multi-phased project demanded constant coordination and careful shut-down scheduling between the construction team and owners. Special attention was paid to Interim Life Safety Measures and Infectious Disease Control due the sensitive nature working within a fully operational hospital. Additionally, we performed a complete removal and renovation of the 1B unit which included 15 patient rooms with med gas hook ups, private bathrooms and a central nurse station.

Phase 3 of The Presbyterian Rev. Hugh A. Cooper Administrative Center is an 84,400sf addition to the existing 320,000sf headquarters office building for PHS leadership, the health plan, and clinical support staff. It incorporates the latest effective strategies for workforce productivity, recruitment and retention, and long-term operational efficiency.
To tie into the existing buildings and maintain a cohesive campus, the new three-story Phase 3 building addition is designed to match the existing facility and reflect PHS's brand and culture. The new building creates more general office space to enhance the four work modes - Focus, Collaborate, Learn, and Socialize - and support ongoing increases in staff for Presbyterian Healthcare Services. At capacity, the new office space can ultimately house an additional 500 employees to the existing 2,100 staff at the campus.
The addition is narrow, similar to the wings on the Phase 2 building, and oriented to minimize heat gain while maximizing views and natural light for the occupants of the primarily open office environment. Closed office functions, such as conference rooms, are located at the core of the building, while workstations are along the perimeter to maximize daylight and views. Flexible systems furniture supports long-term flexibility, allowing PHS to more easily rearrange workstations as needs change. The design strategy and aesthetics are carried throughout the new addition for a seamless integration into the existing facility.
This project was completed in 14 months and received an ABC Excellence in Construction Merit Award as well as a NAIOP Excellence in Construction Merit Award.
Located near Balloon Fiesta Park, the 195,000sf ground up addition is one of Albuquerque’s largest post-recession projects at nearly $27,000,000. This ground-up addition tied into the existing 133,000sf building and expanded Presbyterian Healthcare Services’ headquarters to 328,000sf, which is home to 2,200 employees. The project’s prime guiding design principle was to create a work environment that enhances the four work modes: Focus, Collaborate, Learn, and Socialize. The desired outcome should improve staff performance, enhance communication, foster innovation, and attract and retain talent. The addition includes a new two story common lobby with public and staff entrances, open and private workspaces for 1,100 staff, support spaces, and a 15,000sf training center with six large themed meeting rooms and a 300 seat auditorium. The 38 acre site has three parking lots, plenty of shaded outdoor area, stone benches, bike storage and majestic views of the Sandia Mountains. Incorporation of sustainable principles to improve the work environment, such as long east/west axis office wings with shallow core-to-exterior depths, maximize views and provide abundant natural light to work spaces.

Albuquerque proudly welcomed Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, a much anticipated fine dining restaurant located in the Uptown area off Louisiana and Indian School.
This project began in a space that was previously occupied by three retailers and included a split story, open layout with a lower basement level and mezzanine. Enterprise Builders prepped the shell space and created a 10,000sf canvas that would greatly add to the local dining scene.
The blank space was built out to include a custom kitchen, elegant bar and unique dining area with custom woodwork, high end finishes and exquisite lighting fixtures- one of the most notable being a circular chandelier overhanging in the mezzanine with hundreds of perfectly placed dangling crystal lights. The interior design offers patrons a variety of different themes and custom 3D artwork that was hand sculpted during construction. There are wall hangings representative of New Mexico, mountainous color schemes, hand carved wood accents and segmented glass.
To update the exterior façade, the parapet was raised to make room for signage and a welcoming entryway. One Park Square is also decorated with a highly visible sign hanging from the top and lighting Uptown.
Ruth’s Chris distinctive design and upscale menu will surely attract locals and visitors alike, and offer a unique dining experience unlike anything in town. It is exquisitely different and nothing less than extraordinary.

The Albuquerque International Sunport is an iconic New Mexico landmark welcoming travelers to the majestic Land of Enchantment. As part of the City of Albuquerque’s ongoing efforts to maintain and perfect the facility, the solar powered Sunport VALE Long-Term Parking Improvement was added just north of the multi-story parking structure off Sunport Boulevard. The project made use of an existing exposed parking lot, which has since been transformed into 100% American-made solar powered covered parking area, known as the Economy Lot.
Over 160 auger penetrations were made so that steel columns could be cast to hold up the 4,060 photovoltaic panels to power the structure. With the utilization of solar power, the efficiency will meet the city’s desire to utilize renewable energy and commitment to finding alternative forms of energy to power public structures. The Sunport VALE Long-Term parking structure is a great addition to New Mexico. Proudly this is a product of all American-made materials with the support of local contractors and designers. The new covered area will protect over 400 long-term vehicles against weathering while adding to vitality of the New Mexico’s first stop for travelers. For News Clip, click Here

The Medical Resort at Fiesta Park is a beautifully renovated 65,000 sf facility, which makes use of the original 1950’s vintage heritage of the building. The multi-million dollar redevelopment transformed the building, which had been re-purposed and remodeled several times since its original completion, by incorporating original characteristics with a modern touch. The contemporary design enhances the original brick walls and fireplaces to coincide with the stunning neutral tones, offering clients a resort-like stay. The fully revamped facility now boasts a coffee bar, multiple fitness/therapy areas, eat-in bistro restaurant and movie theatre, which are all provided within a stunning environment with 85 private patient rooms. Prior to the renovation, completed by Enterprise Builders Corporation and Cauwels & Stuve Construction & Design, the facility served as a nursing home. With many of the bedroom outlines already in place, the main structural improvements included enclosing outdoor patios to form group areas and creating a unifying interior design to conform to the New Mexico Department of Health’s Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) standards. Additionally, mechanical units and windows were replaced to increase efficiency and cut down on energy consumption. The exterior of the building received some sprucing up as a fresh coat of stucco was applied, and steel screens decorate the building while serving as blockage from the sun. The spectacular details of the job came together to embrace the building as it once was and to create a one-of-a-kind facility providing superior care to clients as they reside in a resort-like Skilled Nursing Facility. This is truly a “home away from home”.

The rapidly expanding Uptown retail district is now home to Total Wine & More. The repurposed building was once a lavish office space for Morgan Stanley Smith-Barney, which now resides in Two Park Square (and was proudly renovated by EBC in 2011). Now, the newly renovated superstore is 23,400 sf of pure “wine-bliss” with endless rows of wine, beers, spirits, cigars, accessories and more. The transformation began with major demolition of the existing office space, which consisted of an array of glass panels, wood accents and stone countertops. Structural changes to the existing masonry walls were needed to create a 24’ x 42’ delivery dock on the southwest end of the building and special traffic coordination was carefully pre-planned to account for the confined parking area. As the interior of the building took shape, the center remained an open market while the perimeter became home to several walk-in coolers, a cigar humidifier and a stunning wine tasting room. Only top-of-the-line finishes were used to decorate the store including custom shelving and display drawers, low V.O.C. flooring, vibrant floating signs with wood backing and decorative steel window coverings with grapevine cutouts. Ductwork was gently painted and left exposed for added depth to the building’s naturally tall ceilings. Total Wine & More is a fine example of a collaborative project in which the developer, architect and corporate firm were equally involved in the project execution resulting in a stunning store built on a foundation of trust.
