On Monday evening, August 27, the Town Council heard presentations and held Q&A with three finalist firms for the new Town Hall design and construction project. After the presentations and Q&A, the Council had a lively discussion of the firms and their capabilities.
In the end, the Council voted to begin contract negotiations with Sineath Construction/Maury Hurt Architecture. Hurt has extensive ties and experience with Montreat, including his father as President of Montreat College for 11 years. Sineath Construction has done a number of projects here including home renovations and new construction. The Council believes the combination of creative vision, understanding of the project, and high quality construction will serve the project well.
We will keep you informed as to next steps, which will include a community input session. For now, check the Capital Projects Page for updates.
