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.
