CM Black completed a new project at the Cabarrus Arena and Events Center at the end of August. The 10,000 square foot facility replaces a mobile unit and also houses the fair’s management offices.
Construction of the building was approved by the Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners in March. CM Black completed the structure on time, an important achievement since the annual Cabarrus County Fair begins September , which attracts thousands of visitors.
“We are happy to construct this building for the county,” CM Black Vice President Clinton Black said. “We knew how important it was to have the building completed before the fair opened, and we made sure to meet our deadlines while maintaining the quality that our customers expect.”
CM Black is also scheduled to complete the Board of Elections building in the coming weeks. That 10,000 square foot structure has been under construction since March, and is part of Cabarrus County’s initiative for sustainable buildings. Deputy County Manager Mike Downs discussed the building and working with CM Black in this video.
“The Board of Elections Building is a CM at-risk project that shows our capability as a builder,” CM Black President Emmitt Black said. “We are pleased to meet our required timeframe for this structure and show how we can successfully approach CM at-risk projects.”
CM Black is also expected to break ground in the coming weeks for a new facility at Hinds Feet Farm in Huntersville, NC. The 7,100 square foot facility is a non-ambulatory care facility for patients who have sustained a brain injury and will house six full-time patients including a full staff. The project, located off N.C. 73 in Huntersville, is at the existing Hinds Feet Farm facilities.
The single story structure will be built using conventional wood framing and a combination of stone veneer and poplar bark shingles, and is expected to be completed by the spring. The roof will consist of a pitched pre-formed metal roof with dormers, similar to a residential set up. CM Black previously constructed the arts and crafts facility at Hinds Feet Farm.
“We are excited to continue our long-standing relationship with Hinds Feet Farm,” CM Black Vice President Clinton Black said. “We look forward to beginning this project and working with the people of Hinds Feet Farm again.” For more information on Hinds Feet Farm , please visit http://www.hindsfeetfarm.org/..
