This three-story Conference Center is part of the Bartle Hall Convention Center complex. The 200,000 square foot building has direct connections to the Bartle Exhibit Hall and Municipal Auditorium through skywalks and tunnels. The Conference Center also houses additional meeting rooms and the central mechanical plant for the entire Bartle expansion. The building framing is structural steel. The roof is constructed with bow-string trusses to give a 24,000 square foot column-free ballroom. The 34,000 square foot lobby is accessed on each level with escalators, elevators, and a grand staircase. The construction cost was $26 million.
