Hall Entrance Prototype
Looking to refresh the dated look of the entrances to the various Halls of the South Conference Building our client asked us to come up with several design concepts. Ultimately, a proscenium design was selected. The concept included a shadow box frame with ceramic frit pattern and marble surround. Construction of the Prototype Entry (Hall D) is scheduled for Summer of 2014.

North Building Expansion
This ongoing project involves the addition of 150,000 sf. of Exhibition Space to the Existing 315,000 sf. North Conference Building (Halls I and J). The addition includes washroom facilities and the relocation of the existing loading docks. The new exhibition space will have a 70’ column grid and 30’ clear height for maximum flexibility. The expansion floor areas will be separated from the existing Hals I and J with full height folding partition walls. Planning Approval Application is scheduled for the Fall of 2013, Construction for the Fall of 2014.
