The demolition phase of the Orange County Convention Center’s $55 million renovation will soon be wrapped up.
As the second-largest convention center in the U.S. in is the middle of a five-year improvement project, a large portion of the oldest areas of the center will be re-imagined into more spacious modern rooms.
Part of the capital improvement plan was to convert one of the halls into a 50,000-square-foot ballroom and four boardrooms, while several of the meeting rooms will see wood flooring, bamboo ceilings and a scenic outdoor mezzanine deck added.
The project was launched in 2013 and is currently on schedule for renovating areas of the OCCC that are in need of updating. The West Building has been receiving aesthetics and safety improvements since the beginning of 2013. These upgrades, when completed in 2017, will include curtain walls, lighting and utility upgrades, restroom renovations, fire alarm systems, new furniture groupings to concourses and an updated wireless system in both buildings, to handle more attendees on cell phones, tablets, and portable devices at one time for more reliable coverage.
