TKDA provided full programming, predesign, and final design services for a partial 11,000 SF renovation of the former 27,000 SF CW Television Studio building. The functional design of the renovation is to provide a ticket office with an adjacent, covered exterior purchasing window. The team worked with the State Fair to analyze the site and facility for other code and accessibility-related issues.
The project also includes new restrooms, breakroom, storage space, additional open office space for future expansion, renovated entry plaza with accessible ramps, restriped parking lot, and a new emergency exit. Mechanical and electrical upgrades were also provided in the areas renovated. These upgrades needed to take into consideration both the complicated and disjointed existing systems with future renovations, creating solutions that are both flexible and expandable.
