Jacksonville, Florida – (March 30, 2021) – Hurd Construction Management is honored to take home the title of NAIOP Northeast Florida’s Renovation Project of the Year in 2020 for its B the Bakery project.

Hurd Construction Management served as construction manager and general contractor to complete improvements for B the Bakery, an adjunct baking company of Biscottis and BB’s restaurants.

The new bakery location, which was once a convenience store, is in the historic Avondale and Riverside Five Points area in Jacksonville.

Through a partnership with Lane Architecture, lead designer for the project, and Powell and Hinkle Engineering, the lead consulting engineers, Hurd Construction Management led the full interior and exterior renovations and retrofit of the existing 1968 building.

These renovations included a change of use to accommodate the commercial bakery including a complete new interior with modern thermal and moisture protection systems, wall and ceiling finishes, restoration and polishing of the existing terrazzo flooring, new energy efficient lighting, gas service, mechanical and exhausting equipment, a mixing and dry goods station, a walk-in cooler, a walk-in freezer, space for baking and packaging areas, and more.

The exterior renovations consisted of removing and replacing the original roof and deck systems with a new energy efficient insulated TPO system, a new gutter system, architecturally pleasing parapet walls with accent planking, stucco finish, new commercial storefront glazing, fresh paint and sealing of the existing building’s exterior, refresh and pointing of the original brick veneer, and restriping of the parking lot.
