Ram Tool

A consolidation of Ram Tool's offices in the historic Hill Building

Ram Tool consolidated their offices into the historic Hill Building, the original office building in the Continental Gin Development.

The building is composed of the original main concrete structure with steel and concrete wings added decades apart. The exterior walls were cleaned and new multi-paned insulated windows were installed.

Ram Tool, a construction material and tool supply company, sought to expose the construction history of the building to preserve the past and showcase the often hidden elements of construction.

The three-story building has one semi-subterranean floor which houses a grand hall for all employees to gather for events and dining.

The repetition of the block form throughout the building illustrates how blocks can form sturdy, inspiring forms, and structures.
