KS Bank Face Lift Continues

The complete face lift of the existing KS Bank building in Selma, NC continues. This regional bank is updating its appearance after many years, and Gontram Architecture and Ten Penny Construction are teaming up once again to deliver it under the Architect-led Design-Build process.

Phase 1 (of 3) of the interior work is complete. Phase 2 is well underway and should be complete in a couple of weeks.

The exterior work continues, and would make better progress if it were not for all of the recent rain. Nevertheless, the roof trusses have been completed, the fire-retardant roof sheathing and ice-and-water shield has been installed.

This project is scheduled to be complete in September, 2020.

NCRMA Renovation Now Underway!

The North Carolina Retail Merchants Association has occupied the building located at 209 Fayetteville Street in a prominent part of downtown Raleigh since 2012. Many years before that, previous owners renovated the building and installed a cultured marble facade that has leaked like a sieve. The current owner’s have asked Gontram Architecture and Ten Penny Construction to remedy that situation, and return a more traditional curb presence to the building. That project, several years in the making, is now underway.

First on the chopping block is the subgrade exterior garden area that was never realized to its full potential. 1 story below street level, the garden area was a good attempt at bringing some exterior experience to the offices on the basement level. But a constant source of maintenance, and an attractive nuisance from nightly revelers, the garden area was a liability and lost square footage. This project will enclose that area for an interesting multi-purpose meeting space, viewable from street level, but inaccessible to the public.

Work is scheduled to be complete in September 2020.

Bone & Joint MRI – Chiller Installation

The Bone & Joint Orthopedic Clinic in Raleigh, NC has completed their new MRI suite.  The first step in completing the equipment installation was the placement of the chiller on the roof.  This video documents the aerial trip to the roof on a cool, Saturday morning in December.

AECOM/URS/NCTA – January 9

Final finishes are being installed at the North Carolina Turnpike Authority’s toll operations building.  With work above ceiling complete in the cubicle bullpen area, ceiling tiles, carpet and paint have been completed in that area.

Final finishes should be complete by the end of next week throughout the expansion area.

This project is due to be complete by late January, 2018. So far, so good.

Wake Spine – Week 12

Fire alarm devices are being installed and will begin testing next week in preparation for final inspections.  Final paint and floor finishes near completion along with cabinetry and plumbing fixtures.

The new medical office fitup, as designed by Gontram Architecture, will be the latest location for the expanding Wake Spine pain clinic. Wake Spine will begin seeing patients at this location in February.

Bone & Joint Surgery Clinic – Week 12

With just 1 week left until Bone & Joint moves into their new clinic space, there is still A LOT of work left to do.

This past week, the x-ray equipment was installed and is ready for use. Doors arrived a bit late, but will be installed by Monday.

Flooring, cabinetry, plumbing and final paint are all anticipated early next week.

Next week, all final inspections are expected by mid-week so the tenant can move in on Friday.  It’s going to be an exciting week!

The new orthopedic clinic, as designed by Gontram Architecture, will begin seeing patients as soon as January 15th.

Bone & Joint Surgery Clinic – Week 11

The holidays didn’t slow down progress.  Inspections may have been a bit harder to obtain (to get an inspector to show up) since the City took 3 days off this week. Ho Ho!

LVT Flooring is installed, ceiling tile is complete, and cabinetry work is underway.

The new orthopedic clinic, as designed by Gontram Architecture, will begin seeing patients as soon as January 15th.

Wake Spine – Week 11

Between Christmas and New Year’s, it usually dies down a little and folks can take some time off.  This year, however, no such luxury. Schedules are tighter than ever, and with more work on the way, there is no rest for the weary.

The new medical office fitup, as designed by Gontram Architecture, will be the latest location for the expanding Wake Spine pain clinic.

Flooring is almost complete.  Cabinetry is underway.  Plumbing fixtures are installed. Next week, we hope this project will be essentially complete except for final cleaning and inspections.

AECOM/URS/NCTA – Week 08

Week #8 at the North Carolina Turnpike Authority’s toll operations building showed progress. Ceiling grid installation and electrical work overhead is underway.  Prime paint is complete.  Lights will be installed next week along with HVAC diffusers.

This project is due to be complete by late January, 2018. So far, so good.
