86 Maryland Avenue and State Circle
John Corkill, Jr., was instrumental in working with the State AIA to consider investing in existing property near the State House. The idea would be a win-win for our members becoming a much needed home-base close to our State Legislature and also a property investment for all of our members future.
After careful technical evaluation by CCR and other AIA members, a portion of the 86 Maryland Avenue Building was acquired by the State AIA. CCR and members crafted a program to make highly efficient use of space for this intimately scaled fit-out. The three major elements would be a multifunctional exhibit/ large group meetings space, Directors office/ work zone and small conference room for (+10).
CCR was then commissioned to provide existing conditions documentation including historic preservation coordination and review for the 120 year old building. Subsequently, CCR completed permit and construction documents for the much needed project. Permitting generally went smoothly. And we also served as agent/ advisor during the construction phase.
