NC Retail Merchants Association – 007


Existing 90-year old brick walls need work, but will be a major feature in the building.

Existing 90-year old brick wall needs work, but will be a major feature in the building.

Gypsum wall board installation is nearing completion for the interior renovation project for the NC Retail Merchants Association in downtown Raleigh, NC.  Painting and ceiling grid work begins early next week as the final push begins for interior finishes and project completion.

The existing brick wall (16″ thick) has been exposed and needs a little work.  In the end, we anticipate that it will the THE feature in the building, tying it back to the history of Downtown Raleigh, NC.  That brick wall coupled with the newly obtained square footage on the 2nd floor will create a spectacular work space for lucky individuals, or corporate gathering attendees.

Carpet was installed in the Basement this week.  Painting and miscellaneous repairs will take place next week.  We hope to complete the Basement work within the next 2 weeks and seal it off while the rest of the project is completed.

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.
