This 120,000 square foot, one-story Convention Center is designed with an exhibit hall, ballrooms, meeting rooms, and pre-function areas which provides approximately 78,000 square feet of usable space. The team designed the facility to achieve LEED Certification. Rainwater is collected from the roof into a cistern that provides for landscape irrigation. Strategically located solar panels provide water heating and electricity for the outdoor, turtle friendly, lighting system. The integration of the building design with the natural beach front location minimizes the facility’s impact on the environment.
