Project: McKimmon Center Comprehensive Modernization / Innovation Study, NC State Project # 202413007

Description: The McKimmon Center was built in 1976 (100,445GSF), with an addition built in 1983 (15,116GSF) totaling 115,561 GSF. There is a total of 69,136 assignable square footage (ASF) between the two buildings consisting of two-story/double volume space with conference/meeting rooms, offices, food service use and lounge space. The center currently provides an array of learning opportunities within a conference center setting.

a. Site – landscaping and hardscaping, lighting, parking, transportation, traffic, access and security.
b. Exterior building envelope – improve aesthetics, energy savings, long term maintenance
c. Infrastructure and building systems
d. Interior building renovations
– Anticipate future programming and space typologies needs
– Develop/ refinement of the building program
– Provide conceptual designs for renovations
e. Identify enabling projects and prioritization for a phased renovation approach
f. Provide an order of magnitude cost estimate in today’s dollars for each phase
