Foundation for the Carolinas Corporate Headquarters


  • Comprehensive preconstruction planning and construction services to turn a historic building into a new headquarters facility

  • Redesigned mechanical system affected all four floors

  • Phased schedule with a partial turnover and occupancy at five months, and the remainder at seven months


  • To create the region’s premier venue for civic engagement, the project created the Sonia and Isaac Luski art collection, pavilion and gallery event space, outdoor terrace and sculpture garden, 17 board and conference rooms with state-of-the-art technology, Legacy Hall and stadium-seating classroom

  • In 2001, Rodgers had transformed the Foundation for the Carolinas previous headquarters several blocks down Tryon Street. We had also handled an earlier renovation of the historic building for its previous occupant, The Mint Museum of Craft + Design


  • Location on one of Charlotte’s busiest city streets created limited access via the front door of the building and the rear loading dock
