Location: Wirtz, VA
Project Type: Interior & Exterior Renovation
Project Size: 18,290 sq. ft.

The Smith Activities Building, at the W.E. Skelton 4-H Educational Conference Center, was in need of a renovation to update the building’s facilities and aesthetics. This project was split into two phases, allowing for continuous operation during construction. Included in the first phase was the addition of a timber frame entrance portico, updating support offices and the main lobby, as well as a renovation and expansion to the toilet facilities. Just outside the main entrance, a flag plaza was added. The second phase included a renovation of the existing dining room. A new tiered ceiling, new wood floors, and wood trim accents were added. The design included the ability to subdivide the dining room into smaller areas with movable partitions. It also incorporated a partial renovation of the kitchen, the addition of a new agent’s office, medical room, and loading dock.
