Town Hall to Reopen in Kenly

Muter Construction is pleased to announce the completion of the Town Hall renovations for the Town of Kenly, North Carolina. Our team was able to deliver the project in November 2013, three months ahead of schedule. What a fantastic project!

Renovations for the project included re-purposing the existing KS Bank to accommodate a new Town Hall. The new Town Hall facility encompasses 4,300 sf and includes substantial Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance upgrades as well as efficient space planning and upgraded finishes. While the existing Town Hall measured 6,900 sf, the space was not efficient for the needs of the town. The decision to renovate the old bank building for the Town Hall will likely result in a 50% savings in utilities, while affording the town a more efficient facility.

Muter Construction worked closely with the Town of Kenly to ensure the best value for their dollar and assisted the Town’s engineering consultant with the additional paperwork required by the USDA who funded portions of the project through the Rural Development Community Facilities Program. An example of Muter Construction’s dedication to ensuring a long-lasting facility for the owner:  ADA requirements called for an adaptation of the existing sidewalks into the building, and while a concrete overlay would have worked and passed code, it would have started cracking within five years. Muter made the decision to take up the existing sidewalk and pour a new sidewalk to ensure both accessibility and longevity, at no additional cost to the owner.

One of the coolest things about working with the Town of Kenly was that they allowed the Town staff to have input into the layout of the space and to make decisions on the finishes. That’s the way we like to work – ensuring that our end-user is satisfied with the facility and that the facility is built to stand the test of time.

Thanks to the Town of Kenly and Mike McAllister of Municipal Engineering Services Company, PA for allowing Muter Construction to work with you on this important project.
