City of Hendersonville, Hendersonville, NC

The Hendersonville City Hall has been continuously occupied since its opening in 1929.  Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982, it remains a prominent landmark.  This 26,000 SF design renovation turned the building into a state-of-the-art government facility that more effectively serves the public while preserving the original grace and character of the structure.  New heating, air-conditioning, plumbing, and electrical/electronic systems were provided throughout the building, as well as a modern audio-visual presentation system, electronic data, communications, security, and surveillance systems.  Plans included moving the previously remote Police Department into this building, joining 3 other city departments: Governance and City Administration, Finance, and Planning.  A “second main entrance” and new elevator were added on the ground level, making the building fully accessible to persons with disabilities.
