Celebrating the Anniverary of Everyman Theatre

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.

This construction is part of a multiphase campus improvement project for several new academic and residential buildings on The Maryland School for the Blind campus.

Joining the project in July 2013, Premier’s responsibilities include concrete foundations, concrete walls, slab on grade, slab on deck and other miscellaneous site work for the 32,000 square-foot Academic Building and 26,000 square-foot Cottage Building.

“Lewis Contractors is one of the most highly respected contractors in the Baltimore area. They offer superb supervision and have excellent project management,” says Premier Concrete Vice President Steve Workmeister. “We have been working with Lewis Contractors since 2002 and consider them a valued partner. We are thrilled every time Lewis Contractors award a project to us.”

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.”
