IPConfigure, Inc. is a video surveillance and research and development software company based out of Norfolk, VA. When they came to us with the idea of restoring the old Dubin Metals Building on Bowdens Ferry Road we jumped at the opportunity. Here are a few images of the existing conditions and proposed future renovations. This is a historic tax credit project with the original building constructed around 1938 for acetylene gas manufacturing for World War Two! The subsequent additions yield a total building footprint of over 28,000 SF.


IPConfigure plans to utilize a portion of the building as their new headquarters, and they are looking for tenants to take advantage of the large outdoor space and help support their revitalization efforts in the area. This is a very exciting project in the Lambert’s Point area and we are proud to be a part of it!IPConfigure Interiors…the original loading dock canopy welcomes visitors into the building.

Oozlefinch Craft Brewery

WPA is thrilled to partner with For the People Projects on Oozlefinch Craft Brewery in Hampton, VA. The project is located at Fort Monroe and is BCOM project. Jen Stringer (longtime friend and collaborator) is the Lead Designer and Owner of For the People Projects. WPA is the Architect of Record, assisting Jen with her work as Lead Designer and Owner’s Representative.  Oozlefinch Craft Brewery honors the legend of the “Oozlefinch,” a featherless bird that flies backward at supersonic speeds. Under the influence of alcohol, Captain H.M. Merriam first sighted the Oozlefinch outside the officer’s club at Fort Monroe. Over time, reports of Oozlefinch sightings became more common, sketches were made, and a statue of the Oozlefinch was erected on Fort Monroe.Oozlefinch2_2
