Improvements for the Albuquerque Convention Center

This project is providing a much needed facelift for the Albuquerque Convention Center.  Plans for the Convention Center Facelift involve targeting multiple renovations needed for the structure to better facilitate large conventions and events. The renovations include multiple updates to the current infrastructure and amenities. These renovations will allow the structure to be better equipped at handling larger local and traveling events. This has the potential to bring a great deal of extra business and tourism to the City of Albuquerque.

Budget

The budget for design and construction is approximately $25 million and is provided by debt refinancing, roadway and 3% energy efficiency funding.

Project Status

Phase 1 includes renovation of the West Building ballrooms and kitchen, a new service elevator, renovation of the dock area, and re-stuccoing the exterior of the East Building.  Phase 1 was completed in September 2013.

Phase 2 construction began in October 2013 and is scheduled to be complete in late summer 2014.    Phase 2 will include the installation of a new glass façade on the west side of the West Building, a new stain and re-stucco for the exterior of the West Building, a new balcony, a new executive conference room, renovations to the atrium common spaces and meeting rooms including carpeting and finishes, and improvements to 3rd Street between Marquette Avenue and Tijeras Avenue.
