About This Project
The Brewery was developed by Lloyd McLean Architects/Russell and Russell Design Studios with the structural engineering expertise of Cascade Engineering Group (now part of ISL). The 22,000 square foot facility has a concrete foundation and a concrete/steel composite mezzanine floor; exterior timber frame; 90,000 board feet of glulam and heavy timber; rod braced frame; and a fire rated, wood decked roof. The building design also incorporated a rhombus plan, multiple gable roof, large windows for street views of the brewing, and a firewall to separate the distillery from the larger building.
The interior mezzanine was constructed of concrete/steel composite materials, elevating some of the process equipment and tanks 20’ above the main slab while holding the heavy weight and providing a view through the high windows.
