Contractor: Loven Contracting
Architect: Smith Architects
Size: 15,083 SF
Location: 5 S. San Francisco St., Flagstaff
Completed: May 2010
Located in downtown Flagstaff, the Tap Room was a complete renovation of the historic Copeland Lumber facility. The building was stripped down to the shell and transformed into a 15,083 SF restaurant and brewery. The circa-1890 building sat vacant since the mid-1990s and is the last remaining building from Flagstaff’s lumber era. The original brick perimeter was reconditioned and the entire interior was gutted. The original wood trusses can be seen as one enters the building. The project was awarded intermediate level recognition from the Coconino County Sustainable Buildings Program. Sustainable amenities include a rainwater collection system, passive solar design and 90% of construction waste was recycled or reused.
