Chamber Offices & Ferry Terminal Info Kiosk 2021 Renovation Project Updates

As an unusual combination of business member-driven nonprofit, community hub, visitor center, and state licensing facility, the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce sits at the nexus of many aspects of Island life. ​Here in 2021, the efficiency of all those diverse elements are actively being improved and our facilities at the Ferry Terminal and on Winslow Way are being renovated thanks to the partnership, assistance and support of the local business community.

Project Goals:

When complete later in the year, the 2021 Renovation Project will:

  1. Add a new meeting room at the Chamber Offices for the benefit and use of all Chamber members
  2. Add a new pop-up space in the Chamber Window on Winslow Way for the benefit and use of all Chamber members
  3. Create more space and separation for the Licensing and Visitor Information desks at the Chamber Offices
  4. Reduce the energy usage of the Chamber Offices through all-new LED lighting fixtures
  5. See the Chamber Offices furniture refreshed and reimagined through local artisans, companies and materials
  6. Give the Chamber Offices a much-needed refresh of both walls and flooring
  7. Double the amount of exterior rack card display space available 24/7 in front of the Chamber Offices
  8. Give grateful thanks to all our 2021 project partners on a prominently displayed commemorative plaque at the Chamber Offices.
  9. Add new digital signage to both the Chamber Offices and Ferry Terminal Information Kiosk
  10. Give the Ferry Terminal Information Kiosk and much-needed interior and exterior refresh
  11. Add six times more exterior rack card display space available at the Ferry Terminal Information Kiosk
  12. Give grateful thanks to all the 1995 project partners by remounting the prominently displayed commemorative plaque at the Ferry Terminal Information Kiosk.

 

Project Partners:

The 2021 Renovation Project has been dynamically led by Matthew Coates and Alia Sugarman at Coates Design (206-780-0876), alongside Todd Cain at Wing Point Construction Company (206-450-4114).

None of this would be possible without the general support of the Bainbridge business community, and the specific additional hard work and contributions from our amazing Chamber members, all of whose work (listed in alphabetical order, this will be expanded and updated as the project progresses) we can now gratefully, strongly and loudly recommend first hand – come by the Offices on Winslow Way or Information Booth at the Ferry Terminal to see it all in person.
