Since 2003, Lake Architectural has worked nationally with J. Crew on all of their Factory stores. Lake was involved in all facets of the project from schematic design to permitting, bidding and construction documents. Lake worked closely with J. Crew designers to develop initial store layouts into code compliant and buildable designs. Lake also performs site visits to proposed store locations to ensure suitability and highlight potential issues. With this information Lake creates the construction documents.
Lake Architectural also implemented a BIM work flow for J. Crew stores. With this workflow Lake is able to provide 3D images of the store designs for client review, provide quantitative take-offs for purchasing and coordinated construction documents.
