Premier Concrete Awarded Another Historic Renovation Project

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—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 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. Premier Concrete was engaged to assist in the rehabilitation of the historic stone mansion.

The Parks & People Foundation seeks to create a community center at Druid Hill Park to provide educational, environmental and recreational programs, neighborhood meetings and special events. The board of Parks & People approved $12 million to reclaim the stone house and the surrounding 9 acres. Parks & People have a lease on the site for 55 years, and the organization plans to move their headquarters from the Stieff Silver Building to the land surrounding the Druid Hill Park mansion.

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.”

BALTIMORE, MARYLANDPremier Concrete is working in concert with Kinsley Construction, Obrecht Commercial Real Estate and Focus Development  to renovate and reconstruct the old Gunther Brewing Company in Baltimore, Maryland. Started in 2011, the finished project will be home to 162 LEED Silver certified apartments and contain more than 5,000 square feet of restaurant space with outdoor seating. The finished development project will also meet all requirements of the National Historic Registry.

Located in Southeast Baltimore, Gunther Brewery is an historic brewery comprised of 15 masonry buildings. The building was home to George Gunther, Jr. Brewing Company, founded in 1900. By 1959, Gunther was the second largest brewery in Baltimore when it produced 800,000 barrels per year and employed approximately 600 people. 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. The Tulkoff company briefly used the factory for their sauce products at the conclusion of all brewing operations.

“It is a privilege to be working with such a fantastic project team on a famous Baltimore landmark,” says Premier Concrete President, Jim Workmeister. “Like any project, the concrete foundation and finishing work will serve the many residents and patrons of the Gunther building for many decades to come. This project is another example of the Premier team helping shape Baltimore’s impressive landscape.”
