CITY OF ENID EVENT CENTER
FEBRUARY 2013 | COMMERCIAL | ENID, OK
In association with Convergence Design, AIP was contracted for the Enid Renaissance Project. This project serves as an important anchor in the master plan development of a six-block civic corridor within the current town square of Enid, Oklahoma. The project scope included a new event center, the renovation of the adjacent Convention Hall, and site improvements to both facilities.
The new Event Center provides a highly flexible multi-purpose venue capable of hosting sports events, concerts, trade shows, and other indoor events. The general character of the architecture consists of brick, masonry, and glass construction to fit into the surrounding downtown architectural context, complimenting the architecture of the Convention Hall and the David Allen Memorial Ballpark.
The existing Convention Hall facility, which had stood dark for several years, was repurposed and brought into compliance with current accessibility standards. The design of the renovation sought to maintain and enhance the general historic character of the 90 year old community asset. The updated facility offers the city conference space as well as a new ballroom, which was a key feature of the overall development, in conjunction with the new Event Center.
