The Walker Warehouse which was originally constructed in 1897, is located in the heart of historic downtown Durham and was the first of the parapet/chimney Italianate style brick warehouses built, and would be used as a model for multiple others in the old American Tobacco Company district during this time period.

Progressive Contracting Company, Inc. (PCCI) has been awarded this contract for the renovation of 9,560 square feet interior alteration of the 30,000 square feet for the future home of the Durham Amtrak Station. This part of the project will coincide with the new concrete platform and

  • new interior partitions

  • finishes
  • custom acoustical and tectum wall panels
  • acoustical ceiling tiles
  • gypsum board ceilings
  • new entrance storefronts
  • glass and glazing
  • fire sprinkler modifications
  • new plumbing
