Radius Corporation - Willow Street Phase 2 - Building 2

A fire, a leaking roof, and concrete block infill of windows all contributed to the degraded state of this historic former silk mill. Renovations of this three-story building support the adjoining one-story toothbrush production facility.

Stabilization, renovations and improvements provided the owner a stable and reliable facility for warehousing, injection molding manufacturing of toothbrush handles, and office space to support the expanding business. All work was phased and accomplished while the facility remained occupied.

The improvements include:

  • Demolition of failing and extensive lean-to additions
  • Media blasting of brick including lead paint mitigation
  • Structural support to lift and stabilize roof trusses
  • New metal roof system with R 30 insulation and extensive rotted wood repairs
  • Removal, replacement and refinish of damaged hardwood flooring
  • Elevator replacement
  • Extensive masonry repairs
  • Historically correct windows and wood doors to meet SHPO criteria
  • Provision of toilet facilities
  • HVAC systems to provide full building climate control
  • Electrical upgrades for power and LED lighting
  • Cosmetic upgrades
  • Life Safety upgrades including Fire Alarm system
  • Code updates including ADA requirements
We also supported the owner through the process of obtaining historic designation.
