Interior wall and floor framing is complete for the interior renovation project for the NC Retail Merchants Association in downtown Raleigh, NC.  Sheetrock is underway with wall rough-in and framing inspections completed.

One surprise that surfaced recently is that some existing interior walls are constructed of brick (16″ thick).  We are currently exposing some of the brick that had been covered up with gypsum board during past renovation projects.  We will be exposing the brick permanently to illustrate some of the building’s history and create a unique interior feature for the occupants to experience on a daily basis..

Roof penetrations were completed this past week.

Sheetrock installation is scheduled to be complete next week, giving visitors a true sense of space.  Ceiling grid work will also begin next week.

Construction is slated to be complete by June 30th.  Because of the accelerated schedule, the design-build process made the most sense to NCRMA.  Gontram Architecture and Ten Penny Construction have once again teamed up for this unique Design-Build opportunity.  As a single-source delivery method, we control budget and schedule, taking a lot of the usual Owner-associated worry out of the project.

Framing complete, sheetrock installation underway.
