The $50 million expansion of the Griffith Fine Arts Building will more than double its size and includes a renovation of Turner Auditorium with improved accessibility, a new 350-seat flexible theatre and an intimate black box theatre. In addition to the performance spaces, the renovated and expanded state-of-the-art building will include two dance studios, two theatres, an auditorium, recording studio, sound stage, audio and video editing rooms, an art gallery, multiple classrooms, rehearsal facilities, faculty offices and the offices of the dean. The facilities will house the CFA’s sound recording technology, filmmaking, theatre, dance and musical theatre programs.
Prior to the start of the renovation project, Ensight Haynes Whaley performed a complete facility condition assessment of existing building to determine feasibility of future renovations and address deficiencies.
