Consisting of an original building of approximately 25,000 sq. ft. together with a new addition of approximately 6,000 sq. ft, the doors of the 700 seat theatre opened in twelve months after construction commenced.
This was a major renovation, involving significant structural, mechanical and electrical upgrades.
Project Scope included:
Demolition of interior partitions back to outside walls and ceiling;
Structural repairs and upgrades, including significant structural support in backstage area;
Installation of new mechanical and electrical systems to serve the new 700 seat theatre;
Significant finishes throughout, included lounges, lobby, seating area and box office/administration;
