Rockford Footwear Depot
The Rockford Footwear Depot is downtown Rockford area’s premier provider of brand name footwear and apparel. Featuring from manufacturers including Bates, Caterpillar, Harley-Davidson, Hush Puppies, Merrell, Patagonia, Sebago and Wolverine. The client wanted to create a new retail outlet for their thriving shoe manufacturing business and at the same time, restore and renovate a 100 year old shoe factory. The project involved retaining the original charm of the original building. The solid wood floors were refinished, and heavy timber beams were left exposed, to add character and leave the feel of the old factory. Entry areas were constructed to provided barrier free access at all levels. All of the single pane windows and skylights were replaced with energy efficient, insulated panel units.
