Featured Commercial Projects

Nags Head Inn

Premiere Contracting was retained by the owner of the Nags Head Inn to perform remodeling work for the 100 room hotel. The work on the Nags Head Inn was completed in three phases. Phase I consisted of updating the bathrooms with more modern plumbing, countertops, cabinets, ceiling tiles, wallpaper, and interior fixtures. We also removed all the oceanfront windows, doors and air conditioning units and replaced with impact resistant high quality windows and door assemblies.

Phase II was more complicated that the first phase as we remodeled the entire tower area of the Nags Head Inn. This phase required the removal of all the glass on the front of the tower. The tower was then reframed with light gauge steel in preparation for the new windows. Specially made galvanized steel brackets were installed for the custom build IPE shutters. The tower was then insulated and resided as well as the trim being painted. The result was a more modern look for the Nags Head Inn tower.

Phase III consisted of a complete retrofit of the pool room. All of the existing exterior windows and doors were removed and replaced.  The room was upfitted with a high-tech HVAC system and colorful blue duct sock to control moisture and keep it comfortable all year long.


Roanoke Island Fire Department

The Roanoke Island Fire Department is a true definition of a design/build project. PCI was retained to design the new fire department, demolish the four existing structures on the site, perform the sitework, and construct the new fire department.  All of these tasks were accomplished in a 9 month period! We performed much of the work in house but also relied on the most qualified subcontractors in the area to complete this project. When the new firehouse was completed it was our final task to demolish the existing building which stood 3ft from the new building. Overall we are very proud of this project and the department continues to serve the community 10 years later.

Dare County Farm Bureau

Premiere Contracting Inc. was awarded the bid to construct the Dare County Farm Bureau. The building and site were constructed in beautiful downtown Manteo. The building consisted of a 5,472 square foot, single story wood framed structure on a concrete and masonry foundation. The site consisted of a parking lot, stormwater infrastructure, landscaping and utility work. We are proud to be the Outer Banks contractor who was selected to construct this facility to serve the residents of Dare County.


Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department

Premiere Contracting was awarded the contract to construct the new Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department, located on Ocracoke Island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The project consisted of the construction of a 6,400 square foot masonry, and timber building, site work, and infrastructure.

Building on the island of Ocracoke presented its challenges in logistics, but PCI took the challenge head on and performed the construction in 8 months. The Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department building features 4 bays with overhead doors for the fire engines; a custom epoxy flake floor with color detail highlighting the maltese cross emblem; 3 separate offices; a large conference room and a full service kitchen.


Corolla Light Town Center

The Corolla Light Town Center is a 17,000 square foot retail building that Premiere Contracting Inc. constructed in only six months. PCI was originally contracted to build just the shell of the building, but upon completion, the owners were quite happy with our craftsmanship so they decided to retain us to design and build most of the tenant spaces.

As part of the building construction, we also supervised all of the site improvements for the entire Corolla Light Town Center area, including new pavement and landscaping throughout the whole center. PCI also supervised the utility and stormwater infrastructures.
