Main Street Mill

The Main Street Mill was four projects in one: the renovation of the historic Sweat Cummings Furniture building shell and structure, the design of the Richford Health Clinic on the 2nd floor, the affordable senior housing apartments on the 3rd floor, and a dental office on the 4th floor. Scott + Partners developed an insulated window design that emulated the original industrial steel sash windows, and a method of insulating the exterior walls while preventing a moisture problem within the walls. Many techniques combining historic preservation with energy efficiency were used, resulting in a design that fits the original character of the heavy timber structure.
