The Lexington Convention Center (Central Bank Center) project was a renovation and addition to the existing convention center space. Upon completion, the convention center will have approximately 100,000 square feet of exhibit space, 24,000 square feet of bathroom space, 29,000 square feet of meeting space, and 44,000 square feet of flexible space. In addition, this project included upgrades and renovations to the Rupp Arena, home of the University of Kentucky basketball program.
This project features a structural steel primary framing system with some exterior precast wall panels. Exterior cold-formed steel framing is used throughout the project for backup of the metal panel finish systems.
