Swift Factory

The Swift Factory complex served as the economic engine of the Northeast Hartford community for more than 100 years before its closure in 2005. The historic, industrial brownfield site contains the former M. Swift and Sons factory, the historical manufacturers of gold leaf and other pressed metals, as well as two homes on a site totaling 2.6 acres. Community Solutions is re-purposing the facility into a multi-purpose community hub to improve health and create jobs for the neighborhood residents. Langan provided engineering services including site, grading, utilities, and drainage design. We performed the site design around the constraints of renovating an existing building.
