New Bern Riverfront Convention Center
The project spans 47,000 square feet including interior and exterior renovations and the addition of a veranda and gathering area to the rear of the facility which fronts the water. Our team worked hand-in-hand with the design team and owner to deliver the project in phases, which allowed the Convention Center to continue hosting events including the USMC Military Balls for nearby Marine Corps bases. The scope of work included interior remediation, finish and renovation and exterior masonry repairs to areas impacted by previous flood damage. The repairs involved the restoration of interior finish materials for floors, walls, ceilings and repairs and upgrades to associated fire, plumbing, mechanical, and electrical systems. The exterior work included the repairs required to restore damaged exterior masonry veneers and membrane roofing repairs.
The Convention Center is a reimagined space finished in a natural palette of blues and greys with nautical themes inspired by the center’s waterfront location on the Trent River. Interior spaces are comprised of resilient materials and variable color lighting, modern updates to the conference rooms and the outdoor space features retractable awnings.
