Charlotte Convention Center Expansion

In March 2017, Charlotte, North Carolina’s City Council approved a design plan for renovations to the 25-year-old Charlotte Convention Center. In fall 2019, the $126.9 million project broke ground. Renovations included increasing leasable space by 50,000 square feet, adding an additional 50,000 square feet of meeting room and pre-function space, technological upgrades, creating an over street pedestrian walkway to the Westin Charlotte Hotel, and creating a light rail station stop.

Atlas Surveying’s Charlotte office was subcontracted by C.M. Steel, Inc. to provide surveying services for the project. Atlas set temporary benchmarks throughout the site, performed an existing conditions survey, located centerlines of columns, set roof and grid points with offsets, and set demolition marks. As-builts were provided for columns, sidewalk for skybridge staircase, elevations of steel beams, bridge landing design, column plumbness, and steel tubes for the skybridge deck.

The project concluded with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in October 2021. Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles boasted that the “project came in on time and on budget.” Atlas Surveying, Inc. is excited to have played a pivotal role in the renovation of a Queen City landmark.
