Architect: Eskew Dumez Ripple
Location: Baton Rouge, LA
The Commerce Building, originally built in 1955 as a commercial building, is currently being renovated into an 8-story residential and commercial space, including parking and a rooftop pool, in the heart of downtown Baton Rouge.
Our work includes the the evaluation of design and recommendations for the renovations, including isolation of lower parking levels from the residential areas and isolation between units on existing single slab construction. Field mock up testing was utilized to evaluate unique designs and maximize performance on investment.
