About the project

The Branson Convention Center is the centerpiece of a mixed-use waterfront development in tourist mecca Branson, Missouri. Purposely designed not to resemble a convention center, the facility anchors the Branson Landing entertainment district and links historic downtown Branson with the Lake Taneycomo boardwalk. As the structural engineer, Walter P Moore used mixed structural systems of post-tensioned concrete, steel, and exposed wood to create a structure that is both efficient and beautiful. 

The main concourse was elevated to conceal loading docks and provide patrons with breathtaking lake views. A structural steel framed convention floor supports 15-inch diameter exposed timber V-braces supporting the wooden roof structure. A 900-key Hilton Hotel tower and parking structure complete the complex.
