Due to the success of the Creemore brand of beer, a small-town brewery was bursting at the seems to grow, adding more warehouse, office, and retail space.
This project came with its share of obstacles. Creemore’s manufacturing plant is located in the heart of the historical village, so expansion was met with a lot of opposition. The brewery could never leave Creemore, so we needed to maintain a similar look to the existing building while ensuring minimal disruption to the downtown core.
We Do It?
To ensure the new expansion fit into Creemore’s small village elegance, we selected facade and building material to capture its historic charm. Sound studies, traffic studies, and full environmental impact studies were conducted to ensure minimal impact throughout the construction process, along with minimal disruption to the surrounding homes.
The Project’s Success.
When the town started to see minimal changes to the aesthetic of their beloved downtown and its brewery, people began to warm up to the project. There was so little disruption during the expansion of the manufacturing plant that Creemore Springs actually experienced increased production levels during construction.
The client was so happy with our ability to meet and exceed functional and budgetary expectations, that they offered to bring us on for future expansion projects and are now a trusted partner of Cowden-Woods.
