MUNICIPAL BUILDING - RENOVATION

KINSTON, NORTH CAROLINA

SUMMARY

Once the fire personnel were relocating to the new Fire Station No. 1, the existing Central Fire Station space was totally demolition to a shell of the old building interior space, including partitions, systems and infrastructure. The Renovation provided new space for the City of Kinston Public Safety Department, including offices for high ranking staff and a new Police Station within the area footprint.

This renovation work improved the overall building vertical circulation and accessibility while re-designing the old Central Fire Station building interior to efficiently house the needs of the Department of Public Safety. These needs included offices for SBI & FBI Agents, Detectives, Ranking Officers, a Sally Port, Arrest and Booking spaces, Evidence Storage, and Training Spaces.  

The City Hall renovation was limited in area with phased construction and scope to allow the remaining spaces of City Hall to remain occupied and functioning throughout construction. The scope of the construction included abatement of hazardous materials, new plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems, and new interior finishes. New vertical circulation was also added to connect the three levels of the building. New stairs, ramp and elevated walkway were added to make building approach entirely accessible. The project included 14,500 sq. ft. of renovation and 800 sq. ft. of addition.
