Premier Concrete Awarded Another Historic Renovation Project

posted by Premier Concrete

Under subcontract from Whiting-Turner, Premier Concrete is currently in the beginning stages of a historic renovation project for Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). The 33,000-square-foot millwork building purchased by MICA last year will become the college’s sculpture school.

“We are literally in on the ground floor of this historic renovation,” said Premier Vice President Steve Workmeister. “This is an interesting project with unique details and we are very excited to be a part of the Whiting-Turner team.”

With the long and brutal winter the region has endured, Workmeister says this project is “great winter work” because they are completing tasks inside of the building. Premier’s main responsibilities for this project are infilling various slab on grade areas, underpinning and installing a new elevator, and installing two-inch slab toppings over existing floors. Premier will also place and finish concrete for the upper-story pedestrian walkway that will connect the millwork building to the former Jos. A. Bank factory also purchased by MICA.

Estimated to be completed by May 2014, the project is part of a redevelopment and improvement campaign pursued by MICA over the past decade. Click here to read more about this project.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND—Just over a year ago, Premier Concrete worked alongside Lewis Contractors to restore the iconic Everyman Theatre. The renovation and reopening of the Theatre played an important role in the renaissance of a theater and arts district in downtown Baltimore’s Westside. This month marked the one-year anniversary of the Theatre’s first public performance in the newly renovated space.

The project consisted of extensive exterior and interior restoration and measures were taken to ensure the historical features of the property were preserved. The Everyman Theatre now features multiple performance spaces with modernized theatre audio/visual systems. Premier Concrete was responsible for the installation of new foundations, walls, flat work and elevated deck pours.

“The Everyman Theatre renovation was an exciting and meaningful project to be a part of,” says Premier Concrete Vice President, Steve Workmeister. “We are thrilled to see the Theatre thriving a year later, and wish them continued success in their new home for many years to come.”

Originally opened as The Empire in 1910, Everyman Theatre has been home to many different types of performances and entertainment, from vaudeville to burlesque to a 1,550-seat movie house. After falling into disrepair in 1990, the venue was donated to the Everyman Theatre in 2006. To learn more about the restoration of Everyman Theatre in the newly designated Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District, watch the commemorative video above, or visit www.everymantheatre.org.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND—With the award of yet another renovation project, Premier Concrete is working in partnership with Constantine Commercial Construction to expand what is commonly known as “The Examiner building” at 400 E. Pratt St. in downtown Baltimore.

The two-story expansion consists of a building addition that will extend the structure 35 feet closer to the street and increase overall square footage from 143,750 to 167,570 square feet, resulting in approximately 24,000 square feet of ground level retail and 24,500 square feet of class A office space on the second level. Major changes include improvements to the multi-tenant common corridors, lobbies, elevators and restrooms; and enhancements to the parking garage. Premier is contracted to install building foundations, slab on grade, slab on deck and other miscellaneous concrete site work.

Expected to be complete in June 2014, the renovation is part of the Downtown Baltimore Partnership Inc. new redevelopment plan to make Pratt Street more pedestrian friendly, improve sightlines and boost the downtown economy.

“Constantine Commercial Construction has provided us a wonderful opportunity to improve one of Baltimore’s landmark buildings,” says Premier Concrete Vice President Steve Workmeister. “Adding retail and restaurant tenants will make this area even more vibrant. We are excited to be on Constantine’s team and an integral part of this project.”

While the two ground floor restaurant tenants have yet to be announced, CPA firm, Ellin & Tucker confirmed it will be relocating to the new space and will become a significant tenant in the office space. By September 2014, Ellin & Tucker will occupy 31,000 square feet total on two floors, including the entire second floor and 7,000 square feet on the third floor.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND—Premier Concrete is working in concert with The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company to renovate the historic Rouse Company Building into a Whole Foods Market in Columbia, Md.

The four-floor structure will undergo extreme restoration and renovation, with plans to remove the second floor in order to create a double height space for the store. Whole Foods Market will occupy the main level, with a fitness center on the lower level.

The introduction of a Whole Foods Market will be the first of its kind within proximity to downtown Columbia. The nearest Whole Foods Market is currently located in Harbor East in Baltimore.

“We are excited to be a part of the team bringing the first Whole Foods Market to the Columbia area,” says Premier Concrete Vice President, Steve Workmeister. “We look forward to the finished project and hope the community enjoys the new addition.”

The restoration and renovation project commenced in March 2013, with Premier Concrete joining the team in May. The project is expected to be complete by fall 2014.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND—Premier Concrete is working in concert with Lewis Contractors and Ziger/Snead Architects to renovate and reconstruct the stone house landmark in Druid Hill Park in Baltimore, Maryland. After almost two decades of vacancy, the stone house was falling apart. The roof collapsed, the stone walls were deteriorating and tree branches were growing through the windows.

The board of Parks & People approved $12 million to reclaim the stone house and the surrounding 9 acres.

Premier Concrete President, Jim Workmeister, says, “It is a pleasure to work with such an experienced project team on the stone house landmark in Druid Hill Park. This project is another example of the Premier team helping shape Baltimore’s remarkable landscape.”

The brewery was eventually purchased by Hamm’s in 1960 and later acquired by the F&M Schaefer Brewing Company in 1963, the plant was closed in 1978.
