Lynchburg, Va

Lynchburg Brewery SketchUp rendering for Draper Aden that was provided by our Planning depertment in Richmond, Virginia.

Project Description
Recently, Summit collaborated with Draper Aden Engineering to conceptualize the adaptive reuse of a long-vacant factory building on Greene Street in Lynchburg for the Economic Development Office of the City of Lynchburg. Our team quickly created SketchUp concepts over a 2-week time span so that Lynchburg’s Economic Development staff could take them to a brewery convention to generate interest in the rehabilitation of this building as a brewery/taphouse with a tasting room, a facility to hold events in a second structure on the site, and a large courtyard for outdoor events.

Using photos and images of the site on Greene Street in Lynchburg, Summit conceptualized what the exterior, interior and grounds based on basic information provided by Draper Aden. The facility and surroundings were created in SketchUp and then provided to Draper Aden who then provided them to the City of Lynchburg for presentation at the 2017 Craft Brewers Conference & Brew Expo America in Washington DC.
