Setting the stage for tomorrow
In an effort to preserve this historic building, improve public and handicapped access, and enlarge workspace areas, the Academy Corporation identified three construction projects. Phase I involved excavating the crawl space basement area and constructing a rehearsal area, meeting rooms, and a workshop. Additionally, the design and construction of a “West Wing” with elevator and emergency egress stairway was needed. Also, a “North Addition” was desired to provide backstage space, an expanded workshop area, additional office space, and a storage area. Planning is underway to produce plans and specifications for the next phase of development.
