We love our small business clients like the Speech and Language Center #lovelocal

We love our small business clients like the Speech and Language Center. Here are more photos of this project HERE. A few years ago we were challenged to figure out how to add space and update the look at The Speech and Language Center. This project site had an existing one story building – simple structure with a gable. The building setbacks on each side of the building were already fairly close to the exterior walls. The parking lot was already close to the front of the building and they needed all the parking spaces that existed.

We started brainstorming ways to add space and figured out we could add 10′ along the front of the building and a little more on one side. That would allow for some reorganization of spaces inside the existing walls to achieve some of the goals of the business.

In this project, we worked closely with the builder to make sure the design hit a very tight budget and stayed within the available building area. It was a balance to achieve a particular style for the business image and function for their desired program.

We were able to squeeze a small second floor space for some office expansion into the program and created the entry and added functional space desired. Working with a small locally owned business is incredibly rewarding for us! Especially when the business is offering critical services for our community. If you don’t know Laura and the folks at the Speech and Language Center – check out their facebook page.

If you are a small business owner and want to expand, reorganize, or update your building, let us know. We love working with local business owners and understand challenging sites, budgets, and buildings.
