Preservation and adaptive reuse of a 75-foot-tall timber-framed grain elevator originally located on the Washburn dock along Sturgeon Bay’s west side waterfront. Constructed in 1901, the structure was added to the State and National Register of Historic Places in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Structural work includes new foundations and lateral system, wood repairs, new fenestrations and access paths, a new single-story addition and stair tower.
Jeffrey Beane is the project manager and lead engineer for all phases of design and construction. From 2018-2021 he donated his personal time and expertise for structural engineering services, and now Beane Engineering is proud to be serving as its Engineer of Record. The project was featured in ARCHITECT, for winning the magazine’s 2021 Progressive Architecture award and more recently winning an Award for Unbuilt Architecture and Design from the Boston Society of Architects (BSA) 2021 Annual Design Awards.
The project is currently in construction.
