Spectrum Celebrates the Completion of the Historic Patrick Henry Hotel Renovations
Thursday, June 30th, 2011
The historic Patrick Henry Hotel in downtown Roanoke held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, June 23, and we are excited to announce our contributions to the new building.
For the renovations, Spectrum Design provided plumbing, fire protection, heating and air conditioning, and electrical, mechanical and structural engineering services, including a high-efficiency water source heat pump that integrates with the unique existing architectural elements which have been maintained in the building.
For the commercial tenant spaces, consisting of a donut and coffee shop - Blue Collar Joe's, a restaurant - First & Sixth, the law firm - Wolfe Williams Rutherfoord & Reynolds, and a radio station - 101.5 The Music Place, Spectrum Design provided all of the above plus architectural services.
Patrick Henry visitors will notice preservation of the existing building features combined with accommodations to meet the modern needs of the business and residential uses of the building. The existing lobby, grand ballroom and Jefferson ballrooms have all been preserved to retain the existing architecture. The office suites have been designed to meet the needs of the commercial tenants in an elegant style that echoes the classical details of the historic hotel.
Spectrum Design has been providing professional services to Ed Walker, George Stanley and Nathan Vaught for years, starting with the Campbell Avenue Lofts, continuing with the Candy Factory, the Hancock Building, the Cotton Mill, Fork in the City and, most recently, the Patrick Henry and the River House.
Spectrum Design continues to perform professional engineering and architectural services for nearly all of the notable downtown Roanoke living projects and our reputation for historic preservation projects is unsurpassed in the region.
Our work at the Patrick Henry represents what Spectrum Design stands for and we are excited to share this project with you.
