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.
