Building 6 Adaptive Reuse, Boilerhouse to Office Conversion, Aleda E. Lutz VAMC

Saginaw, Michigan

American Structurepoint architects, engineers, and consultants led the design for this $4.2 million, 10,233-sft adaptive reuse project, designed with sustainable principles and being submitted for LEED Silver certification. The project involved the extensive conversion of a 1948 boilerhouse into a newly renovated office building, which now houses various Veterans Affairs’ offices. The reconstruction completely revamped the interior, improved the exterior envelope, and added a new second floor with elevator and enclosed stairway access. Each of the two floors contain offices, conference/training room space, break area, waiting and reception area with an accessible restroom, entry vestibule, and associated support spaces on both floors of the building.
