Join the AFC for our monthly Construction Tours! Go behind the scenes of new builds, historic renovations, community spaces and more with us. Learn from industry leaders about the exciting designs and building challenges they overcome to improve Cincinnati’s built environment. Here are some recent tours:
Skanska’s urban adaptive reuse project to expand the global headquarters of Medpace. The facility features walking and bike paths, restaurants, and a 5,000 square foot fitness center with views of the city. The atrium has a six-story LED art installation created by artist Erwin Redl and even the parking garage will host rotating public art installations. Across the block we toured Element Eatery, Madisonville’s new European-style food hall.
Walnut Hills Branch Library
Megen Construction brought us for an inside look at renovations of Cincinnati’s first Carnegie branch library in Walnut Hills. Built in 1906 in the French Renaissance style, the library was a cultural center for Cincinnatians. This project brought the library back to its original glory – restoring the 99-person theater, adding a community room, and preserving historic details – while adding full accessibility and doubling the square footage.
