Historic Warehouse Renovations

Historic warehouse renovation happens to be a specialty of ours because of Richmond’s tobacco row.  Located just below the rapids of the James River, and dating even to before the civil war the center of the tobacco industry was housed in this mostly brick structures.  The tobacco grown all through the south was transported to Richmond for processing and distribution.  The Renaissance or Richmond’s old industrial district into office, restaurant/retail, & living spaces has driven our market from the beginning.   All through Gepetto’s operating history we have been supplying renovations with:

Complex Architectural Designs in Wood

Pictured  above in the video is a three story spiral staircase. Built by Gepetto in a renovated warehouse in the old tobacco row of Richmond’s downtown the steel and wood staircase connects the office and restaurant spaces with a finished architectural element connecting the levels together. The historic wooden floors were matched with antiquing techniques to add visual harmony to the newly constructed staircase. It is pretty funny to see our guys beating some wear marks into brand new flooring, but the the solid beam stair treads can definitely handle it!
