Lambert Architecture was the architect of record for the recent renovation and addition project at 522 Lady St. McCrory Construction, which also is an occupant of the building, served as the general contractor. In addition, the Columbia-based land development firm LandTech also has offices in the building.

The renovation features two levels of office space connected by a new glass circulation tower leading to a rooftop terrace and conference rooms. The approximately 30,000-square-foot renovation cost about $3.8 million, according to documents filed with city planners.

“We are excited to be part of the vibrant and historic Congaree Vista and look forward to continuing to provide excellent service to our clients within the Greater Columbia area and throughout the Southeast,” said Scott Lambert, president.

Built in 1926, the building’s original occupant was the Jeff Hunt Machinery Company, which for 30 years maintained a business at 522 Lady.

The Crane Company followed for a brief period but the Columbia Cigar and Candy Company acquired the building by 1965 and kept its business there until 1997.

Lambert also announced the launch of its new website, which features current projects as well as updated information on the firm’s areas of expertise and design team members.
