Carolina Theater Addition & Renovation / Charlotte, NC

Carolina Theatre at Belk Place

The Details

Stewart is currently performing construction materials testing and special inspection services on this project and provided civil engineering design services for site work associated with the renovation of the Carolina Theatre. The project includes the renovation of the original 36,000-square-foot theater and the addition of a 6,700-square-foot lobby. The project is being supported on deep foundations (macropiles) with concrete slab-on-grade. The structural system will be structural steel framing with elevated composite slabs-on-metal deck up to the 6th level where a podium slab will be constructed.

Stewart’s construction materials testing and special inspection scope includes deep foundation observations, shoring/earth retention, soils, reinforced concrete, structural masonry, structural steel, and spray applied fire-resistant materials (SFRM).

Design services included due diligence and research; site design services and permitting (schematic design, design development, construction documents, bid phase services, and close out documents); additional services such as rezoning; design modifications to the roadway cross section of East 6th Street in Uptown Charlotte, and streetscape along both East 6th Street and North Tryon Street. Additionally, Stewart is coordinating with Duke Energy for the relocation of existing transformers and electrical switchgear from a room inside the building to a new location outside on East 6th Street.
