Coker Tire Ironstead Building
The Ironstead building was an old storage facility which
later became an abandoned building in the Southside
District of Chattanooga. The project was to convert this old
building into four new office spaces. The project had many
issues especially with the deterioration of some of the key
structural members and walls. Our goals for the building
were to preserve the old aesthetic of brick interiors and
tall open spaces while implementing new character in the
areas which needed to be replaced. We re-used brick and
glass block from an area we removed for repair and infill for
window openings. In addition, we added mezzanines for
more lease space and this would allow the tenants to enjoy
the views through some of the clearstory windows. All new
storefront glass with energy efficient ratings were installed
along with rigid installation under the new roof to regulate
the temperature of the spaces within. New landscape was
implemented to reduce the urban heat gain and set the
standard in the neighborhood. With the combination of all
these new items and principals, the Ironstead building will
be more efficient and sustainable.
