The Duke Energy Convention Center is currently in schematic design for both the building renovations and the two-acre park and outdoor convention space at the former Millennium Hotel site. An exploratory study of the building’s electrical, plumbing, and roof is also underway. This will help determine the exact scope of repairs needed. Plans are advancing through an iterative process of design, value engineering, and cost refinement to arrive at a final design that is within the project budget. Currently, there is a request for proposal (RFP) to select a subcontractor for the building façade. Identifying a subcontractor now will allow that organization to be involved in the design process and ensure a high-quality and cost-effective final product.
