Alamo Drafthouse Cinema

This project included the complete interior demolition of the 36,000 SF 1950’s Winn Dixie in the Longview Shopping Center in order to convert the space into the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. The Cinema includes 11 screens, a full-service kitchen, lounge, and bar. We worked with the architects and engineers to coordinate the removal of 8,000 SF of concrete for all the new underground plumbing lines required for the kitchen and restrooms. Careful planning of logistics was required as the tenants on both sides are fully operational. All material deliveries, equipment, and crews are staged in the rear of the shopping center. 

Cary Village Square Shopping Center

Demolition of 500 linear feet of existing retail façade and replacement with brick veneer, all while keeping existing tenants open for business. Keeping businesses open throughout entire project was our challenge. Restricting access for safety was critical due to the proximity to Cary High School.

Expansion of the building footprint to add exterior covered seating at Weaver Street Market located in Southern Village Shopping Center. The expanded store includes 10 feet by 80 feet of additional retail space and a new indoor/outdoor dining area. Work also included a new metal roof and electrical work. Work was performed while building was occupied. Construction was phased such that the store has remained open. The team also maintained a safe area for pedestrian traffic.
