Located just off of I-64 in Frankfort, the Kentucky Chamber’s headquarters was renovated in 2010.
The $3.2 million facility, funded, in large part, by donations and sponsorships from members, is now 17,000 square feet. The building features state-of-the-art technology, including the AT&T Videoconferencing Center.
The Chamber is linked to the state’s videoconferencing network, through the Commonwealth Office of Technology, which includes every state university and community and technical college, every health department and some school systems.
In addition to cutting-edge technology, the building features art pieces commissioned by Kentucky artists, including four large paintings that portray the four seasons in the Commonwealth by John Lackey; panoramic photos by Lexington photographer Jeff Rogers; and paintings made with layered coal by Darrell Ishmael, manager of corporate security and continuity at East Kentucky Power and a past Kentucky Chamber board member.
The majority of the contract work done on the building was done by Kentucky companies and Chamber members. Click here to take a virtual tour of the Kentucky Chamber’s headquarters.
