The City of Columbus hired Major Design Studio to renovate the existing Trotter Convention Center. It is a prominent meeting facility located in downtown Columbus. We were hired to remodel the interior and exterior of the building. MDS was challenged to provide the best solution within a constricted budget. Therefore, we chose to focus on the main spaces that the public utilized the most. We are upgrading all of the existing finishes in the 1500 seat auditorium to include a state of the art audio/visual system. MDS is upgrading the lighting LED fixtures throughout the auditorium, lobby and meeting spaces, included LED theatrical lighting in the auditorium. We are giving the main entrance a face lift by constructed a new façade to resemble its surrounding downtown facades. This project is being done in conjunction with a construction management firm.
