The Angelika Theatre interior finish out incorporated high-end materials that resulted in a sophisticated, luxurious venue. The 20,000 SF theatre features Angelika’s signature crystal chandelier and a free-standing radius stairwall with stainless steel rails and decorative concrete steps to match the stained concrete on the second floor concession lobby. The glass elevator is trimmed in brushed stainless steel and the elevator face on the second floor features walls fabricated from the same Israeli-imported granite that is used on the first floor.
The floor and columns on the first level of the theatre are crafted of polished bamboo. The concession stands on the second floor were made of exotic woods imported from Australia. Rogers-O’Brien installed all the equipment for concessions. Two of the theatres were designed for conference room capabilities, with dimming lights, podium and computer/Internet connectivity that ties into the theatre sound system. The team installed stereo sound systems in the entire theatre complex.
Based on the Fair Park Comprehensive Development Plan, the Fair Park Esplanade and the Parry Avenue Gate was restored and enhanced by the addition of a water feature which occupies a portion of the historic 700-foot long reflecting basin. The fountain includes the tallest water jets in the state and is designed to be choreographed to music, a sound system and lights. In the spirit of the original 1936 show, this new water feature delights visitors day and night with changing programs. The restoration included a large pylon, landscaping and light features surrounding the fountain. With the addition of the DART Light Rail Station in 2009, a restored historic entrance gate greets visitors to Fair Park. The gate structures were restored and the wall reconstructed to match its original 1936 appearance.

The new clinic features expanded services, including 21 pediatric exam rooms, 12 adult exam rooms, and an imaging suite with mammography and x-ray. Lewis supported Virginia Mason’s Lean process in areas such as mocking up patient rooms to help them understand the look, ergonomics, and workflows of the planned layout.
Lewis built out a 20,546 square foot tenant improvement for Swedish Medical Center at the First Hill Medical Pavilion.

Choate Construction’s renovation to Family Dollar’s corporate headquarters dramatically transforms the drab, 1970s era existing facility into a modern, bright place to work. Total renovations consist of 90,000-SF of occupied office space, the construction of a 23,427-SF vendor merchandising facility, new truck entrance and parking area, new entrance, replacement of skylights, and the reconfiguration of the parking lot with new hardscape and landscape. Also included is the construction of an onsite sample store with a tilt-up exterior and a glass storefront entrance. The sample store consists of 7,832 SF of office space and 15,595 SF of warehouse space.The new office area consists of the demolition of the current area back to the core shell with plans to recycle all carpet, ceiling tile, metal and concrete materials. Five phases of construction allows continuous use of the building during construction. Each phase involves all new electrical wiring along with outlets, switches and fixtures, new VAV boxes and duct work, updated sprinkler lines, new walls, ceiling tiles, carpet squares, doors and glazing. The installation of a new entrance and lobby tower replaces the original front pre-cast panels. Insulated glass panels replace the entire glass skylight system to weatherproof the space and make the system energy efficient.

The building’s “L” shape was dictated by the location of the existing Fisher House, short term stay facility for Veterans, at the southwest corner of the site. Our project involved rerouting utilities to and from the Fisher House and being a “good neighbor” by being cognizant of maintaining parking areas and delivery routes to their facility, along with daily start and stop time constraints for construction for noise mitigation.
