The Black Sheep Social Club features “Great Gatsby” era ambience at its finest. Every detail exemplifies how much time and effort has gone into this exciting new addition to downtown Cedar Rapids. We’re proud to have helped make this renovation such a success!

The four-story, 100-year-old building has approximately 10,600 sq. ft. per floor. There is also an addition to the south for bathrooms and the elevator. A fifth-level features a lounge for the owner’s condo, which is half of levels three and four. There are seven unique and luxurious condos above the social club, several of which are either occupied or ready for occupation. The project cost on this multi-use facility, which combined commercial and residential space, was just over $4 million.

We had two workers on site for just over two-years to do the entire renovation, which included:

  • Demolition of the existing piping system for the entire building
  • Adding a lower-level ramp with radiant hot water heat
  • Domestic water booster system for the entire building
  • New cast iron drain waste and ventilation system for the entire building
  • All copper water lines with 1.5″ color-matched PVC jacketed insulation throughout the building
  • Instantaneous Navies® hot water heaters throughout the building
  • The owner’s condo has a Navies® combination unit to serve the radiant indoor heat and domestic hot water needs
  • Multi-level slide from the owner’s living room to the social club
  • New plumbing and separate gas systems for the condos, Black Sheep Social Club, and the future Clock House Brewery
  • Installation of the new brewery began in June 2016

It will house the hospital’s new emergency department, surgical suites, and heart and vascular center.

Work at the hospital includes: PVF, Medical Gas Equipment, Snow Melt Materials and Pumps, Pressure Booster System, Pumps/Glycol Feed, Humidifiers/Heaters, Boiler/Condensate Return/Deaerator/Pumps, Insulation, Brecke Excavation, Generator Fuel Oil System, and Fuel Tank Setting.

The Great Furniture Mart building in downtown Cedar Rapids, Iowa is getting a makeover. They’re preserving the outside brick while completely renovating the interior. The top floors will be new condominiums. The first floor will be the Black Sheep Social Club. Eventually a brewery will also be located here.

Use Brecke if you want a mechanical contractor that is professional and has superb equipment. Our building has several public offices so it’s vital that our contractor is easy to contact, quick to arrive, and can dependably handle all of our heating, ventilating and cooling needs. Brecke is all that and more!

All that and more!
