AECOM Hunt, as part of a joint venture, completed the expansion of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. The 726,000 SF expansion represents one of the largest jobs the city of San Antonio has undertaken to date.
The project includes the addition of exhibit halls, multi-purpose rooms, a ballroom, meeting rooms and administrative and support areas. Additionally, the expansion includes a cantilever that extends over Market Street to clearly mark the main entrance to the facility, while also adding a unique design aspect to the space. The most challenging part of the expansion was to keep the rest of the facility undisturbed during the renovation. A large temporary wall was established to separate in-use space from the worksite.
