Pontiac Mills Apartments

 

The Pontiac Mills Development is the adaptive reuse of more than 20 separate historic textile mill buildings into a mixed-use complex comprised of both office/retail and residential rental apartments. This historic textile mill complex was the original producer for Fruit of the Loom brand of cloth. Approximately 135 apartments and 50,000 SF of office/retail space will be developed within the existing mill complex along the banks of the Pawtuxet River in Warwick, Rhode Island.

Work on the development began in 2016 and will encompass the renovation of approximately 200,000 SF, with first occupancy in 2018 and all phases completed by 2019/2020. The estimated cost for the entire project is $35,000,000.00. The project has been approved as an historic structure/complex from both the State of Rhode Island and the National Park Service. Pontiac Mills, originally built in 1863, has been declared a Nationally Registered Historic District, and will utilize various state and federal tax credit programs.

LSOP Mainstreet Renovation

The renovation to the “Main-Street” facilities at the Little Sister’s of the Poor – St. Martin’s Home campus required that CAM raise the existing roof structure within the middle of an occupied facility, and provide a new library, salon, community store, coffee shop, formal dining facility, and common areas. In addition, our team renovated all main corridors within the facility, and completed a full mechanical and electrical system extension and upgrade.

In similar nature to the previous phases, the building remained occupied and fully functional throughout the project.

 

 

The Ridge – Former Abell School

Historic restoration and an adaptive re-use project of a registered Historic property. This late nineteenth century Beaux Artes Mansion was designed by Baldwin & Pennington and was built by John Stack & Sons. Originally a twenty-eight room residence that was later turned into a school for handicapped children, CAM returned it to a private residence and won numerous awards for our efforts.

This project required removal of lead based paint and asbestos, installation of a heating and the design and installation of the home’s first air conditioning system – installed with no disruption to the historic interior fabric of the home. The project also included restoration of the plaster walls, ceilings and crown moldings, restoration of the interior shutters and a complete restoration of a two story tower, replete with brick, terra-cotta, metal cornices, lead coated copper, slate roofing, etc..

Robert Poole Building

The Robert Poole Building is home to The Academy for College and Career Exploration (ACCE) and The Independence School, a project within the 21st Century School Buildings Plan. Our team partnered with the Maryland Stadium Authority, Baltimore City Public Schools, & JRS Architects to provide pre-construction & construction services to this historic building.

This project renovates the original historic building and demolishes several later, outdated additions, replacing them with two new additions. Construction began in August 2016, and was completed for the start of school in August 2018. Key features include 72,044 sf of renovated space including the Media Center and CTE Labs, with another 63,852 sf of new construction. The new portion of the building contains a state-of-the-art Gymnasium, Art & Music Classrooms, and a Collaborative Learning Stair.

A dedicated entrance for community space leads to 1,980 sf featuring a large meeting room, career readiness room, food pantry, and a laundry center. In addition, there are two new greenhouses available for student use.

Thoughtful design allows for the building to maximize daylight in instructional areas, including the new collaborative learning areas, while there is a clear circulation path for wayfinding and security.

The renovated facility will gracefully transform an iconic building in the Hampden neighborhood into a true 21st century school.
