Facility Expansion and Renovation
Although capital maintenance is done annually, we believe a renovation and small addition to our existing structure is necessary in order to meet increasing demand of our facility. In the spring of 2019 we’ll open our doors as a revitalized and expanded center. This page will be updated regularly with information that will help you prepare for a little bit of dust in 2018 and early 2019 while also getting a sense of the incredible center that will await you and your partners. Schematic drawings, renderings and photos will be added to this section of our website as they become available.
The Seaside Civic and Convention Center (SCCC) received approval from the Seaside City Council in August, 2016 to move forward with work to renovate and expand the current center. This followed years of research and development to study the most effective and efficient way to expand a center that had not received significant updating since the early 1990s.
In March of 2017, the SCCC hired Klosh Group, LLC to serve as the project manager for the now approved $15 million project. A short time later, the SCCC selected Portland-based Holst Architecture and Convergence Design of Kansas City for the contract to design a planned renovation and expansion of this 45-year-old facility. After a schematic design phase throughout the summer months, the following renderings and layout plans represent the most comprehensive design set to date.
This fall, the Center added O’Brien and Company Construction to the project team. Holst, Convergence, O’Brien and staff will continue to work hand-in-hand with final design elements throughout the winter months. It is anticipated that construction will begin on the nearly $15 million project in March or April of 2018. The project has targeted a completion date for early Spring, 2019.
