Building Excellence for over 110 years



The Paramount Theater


Charlottesville, Virginia


Martinez & Johnson


$16.2 million


December 2004

The main object of this project was to give a more modern and vibrant look to this facility.  Outdated wall papers was removed and walls were painted with new crown moulding; all resident room entrances were replaced with 6-panel doors painted in white for fresher look inside; all flooring at rooms, corridors and bistro area were replaced; new and modern casework was installed; and a complete renovation of the dining and serving area was performed which included new quartz tops, casework, ceilings, paint and trim work, creating a much more attractive and appealing environment overall.

The existing resident room valance-style heating and cooling system was removed and a new ceiling fan coil system was installed.  New lighting was also added to the hallways and resident rooms.


Chad Hershner, former executive director of The Paramount Theater, says, “The Paramount was thrilled to have Nielsen Construction as the general contractor for the restoration and expansion project. Nielsen headed up a team of local and regional subcontractors who brought this rich, historical landmark theater back to life.”

We love what we do!
