Innovation Center of Vermont • Burlington, VT

This 174,000 square foot heavy timber and masonry structure was built as a cotton mill in the early 1800's. Numerous additions and renovation projects led to it being occupied by a single business office tenant. Following the relocation of this tenant, Smith Buckley Architects was enlisted to assist with transforming the building into a multi-tenant facility.  Early speculative designs by SBA were instrumental in helping prospective tenants visualize the potential of the building.  In addition to BOMA analysis and overall leasing support, Smith Buckley Architects have created designs for the following tenants:

• Vermont Energy Investment Corp. offices: 50,000 square foot open offices occupy the entire 4th floor and part of the 3rd floor. A new floor opening and communicating stair connect levels and create the "Town Center" communal space.

• All Wellness Physical Therapy and Pilates Studio: High ceilings and abundant natural light are key features of this pilates and physical therapy studio design.

• Veterans Affairs Community Based Outpatient Clinic: The new 17,600 square foot Outpatient Clinic provides critical health care coverage to veterans. Access to natural light is maximized in reception, exam, and counseling rooms. This project will be LEED CI certified.
