McGrath worked with Roth Sheppard Architects on the complete remodel of an existing warehouse into the Blue Moon Brewing Company and Restaurant. The building includes a 11,400-square foot of brewery and support spaces, 1,780 square feet of office area, 8,280 square feet of restaurant and bar seating, stage area and retail shop, 1,700 square feet of commercial kitchen and support spaces and 2,700 square feet of tour, meeting room and special tasting room.
The building is conditioned with gas heat, DX cooling roof top units, a gas fired evaporative make-up air unit makes up air exhausted by the kitchen hoods, and various exhaust fans serve toilet rooms, scullery area, the brew house. The equipment is installed on structural steel platforms above the barrel roof.
The plumbing system includes stainless steel waste piping from the brewery to a sampling man hole, grease waste from the kitchen to a grease interceptor and sanitary piping from the toilet rooms and other miscellaneous spaces. Domestic water and natural gas systems were designed to support the various restaurant, office and brewery needs.
