Project Description: Project consists of construction of a 21,306 SF building to house the
new City Hall for Morehead City. The building is a two-story structure. Exterior
envelope is masonry veneer with cast stone trim on metal stud backup and steel framing.
A clock accented by cast stone ornaments, high parapet, and storefront openings all echo
features of the original Charles S. Wallace High School which formerly occupied the site.
First floor of the building will house finance, public service and planning and inspections
functions. The second floor features an exhibit lobby, council chambers, administrative
spaces, human resources and IT functions, and a two-story oculus for a view of the sky.
Mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems will be provided throughout.
Civil scope includes revision to existing site access, walkways, and some new parking.
