JAMES CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS – Phase II

Week 25 – March 20 -26

Sound panels were installed on the walls. In addition to the positive impact on acoustics of the room, the panels are visually appealing.


Weeks 23 & 24 – March 6 – 19

Work continued outside with the carpenter making forms for the sidewalk from the new rehearsal hall to the new ADA parking spots. The concrete is a water-permeable mix.


Week 22 – February 27 – March 5

A major project this week was mounting the TV monitor and speakers on the walls. The TV monitors are located behind the conductor – facing the musicians.

Outside preparations were made for the sidewalk and handicap parking spots.
