One of the College’s Facilities Master Plan Property Preservation Projects is currently underway. MCC’s theatre closed June 10 and is being renovated through the winter 2017 session. Property Preservation Projects focus on improvements that directly impact the quality and delivery of instruction at the College, as well as the management of College operations.
As it has been explained, use of the theatre for programs, events, etc., during this renovation is not permitted. This project will initially involve some closures of the hallways around the theatre to install new lighting and sprinklers. After the initial work is finished at the end of the summer, the work will move completely to the interior of the theatre. Construction will proceed through both summer and fall. Completion is on track for February 2017.
Many thanks to our Facilities Engineering Department for working with the Popli Design Group, M/E Engineering, acousticians, AV consultants, and faculty and staff from VaPA and Campus Events to enable this work to be efficiently done.
Attached is a rendering of how the theatre will look upon completion. Watch the Tribune for future updates.
