Sometimes the biggest success is keeping disruptions as small as possible.

Sometimes, growth overwhelms an existing building’s ability to accommodate the needs of its occupants. In the case of the Williamsburg Municipal Building, moving locations was not an option. Therefore, a new strategy had to be devised in order to meet the updated requirements of the space while remaining cost and time efficient.

GuernseyTingle helped the City of Williamsburg to not only renovate the 23,000 sq. ft. Williamsburg Municipal Building, but also add a 16,500 sq. ft. addition — all while maintaining operations within the existing building. The project resulted in a 70% increase to the existing building area while being awarded a LEED Silver Certification for reducing energy costs by 21% overall. Our interior design team worked closely with the City to document and plan for the relocation of all FF&E, successfully minimizing disruption as the addition and floor-by-floor renovations were completed, with staff members relocated to either swing or new space.
