The Performing Arts Center and Auditorium project brings innovation and beauty to Canyon High School’s campus with its many features including a ticket office, seating for an audience of 450, an orchestra pit, a control room, a main stage, a scene shop and a drama classroom. The facility also incorporates state-of-the-art theater technology via Digital Audio Network Through Ethernet (DANTE) as well as an audio/video system with Electronic Theatre Controls (ETC) lighting with dimming controls. The technology not only creates a learning environment for students, it supports the many community performances that will take place in the new facility.
Additional project features include an acoustically designed scallop wall and ceiling cloud system coordinated with MEP systems to balance competing demands for acoustics, air quality and comfort. The acoustical ceiling cloud formation is suspended from the structural steel beams which not only provides acoustical benefits, it conceals a suspended catwalk system used for both fixed and portable theater lights, speakers and fire sprinklers.
The project achieved more than 85,000 hours without lost time due to injury.
