TRITEC Building Company renovated the Ed Mitchell's clothing store in Westport, Connecticut. The interiors of this 31,000 sq.ft. building was completely demolished in phases. It upgraded the overall appearance with new finishes that included several designer shops such as Giorgio Armani Black, Hermes, Tod's, Prada, Polo, Zegna, and Hickey Freeman.
High-end finishes included imported stonework for walls and floors, venetian plaster, herringbone wood floors, splayed ceilings, and extensive millwork. The exterior portion of this project included a structural transformation of the roof, opening up two large clearstory skylights for the main floor. An additional 4,000 sq.ft. was excavated underneath the store for a sliding storage rack system. The building's facade was removed and reworked using a combination of thin brick, stucco, storefront glass, and extensive metalwork. The site drainage, landscaping, and parking lot were upgraded.
All work was completed on schedule in a nine-month period while the store was open for business.
