Anticipated Project Timeline

  • Design Phase: November 2020 – November 2021
  • Agency Approval: December 2021 – August 2022
  • Bid Phase: Spring 2023         
  • Construction Start: Summer 2023
  • Targeted Completion: Fall 2025


The project involves a full renovation of the existing 1969, 3-story (+mezzanine), 66,765 square foot Fine Arts building.  The project is a partially state funded project.  Renovation will allow the following fine arts programs to be housed within the building: Art (Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Ceramics, 3D Art, and Jewelry making); Photography; Music; Media and Communications; Recital Hall; Galleries; and associated support spaces.  The building will require full seismic rehabilitation, accessibility, and fire life safety upgrades to bring the entire building up to the current 2019 code requirements.  In addition, the project will replace mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire life safety, and technology systems throughout.  Noise intrusion between spaces will be mitigated to minimize disruptions to instruction and music practice, and new instructional technology will be installed to support current instructional methodologies and pedagogies.
