The New Ball Game
Our team at Convergence Design, like many, are grieving the cancellations of spring activities like baseball’s Opening Day. Covid-19 has taken us all by surprise and we are doing what we can to minimize its impact and flatten the curve.
As of this week, we have been ordered to work remotely. Our physical office is closed, but we remain open for business as we work from home.
We will conduct business (mostly) as usual. Web conferencing, email and phone calls will allow us to meet regularly as a team and continue working on current projects. We look forward to teaming with you on future endeavors.
Stay healthy, and remain hopeful.
We’ll see you soon, at the old ball game!
Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd…

QUINCY — In the first of many meetings to come, the Quincy Riverfront Development Steering Committee met Thursday and outlined the yearlong process of developing a comprehensive development strategy for the city’s riverfront.“I think it was a good back-and-forth on expectations and what we wanted this process to look like. This was honestly the most dialogue in a committee meeting that I have had in some time,” Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore said after the meeting. The committee consists of members of the Quincy City Council, Quincy Park District Commission, Adams County Board and members of the public. Read more…

A team led by Convergence Design has completed schematic designs for a new arena in downtown Clarksville, Tennessee. The arena will be used for basketball, hockey, and concerts, and will also include a second ice sheet for practice and public skating.
At an estimated construction cost currently at $105 million, and with bonds approved to cover all costs — both expected and, perhaps, unanticipated — at $130.7 million, the design currently calls for a multi-level, multi-purpose events center (or MPEC) encompassing a grand total of about 320,000 square feet, it’s now projected.
