NEW CONSTRUCTION/RENOVATION

Ticket Box Office and Roof Garden

(Ticket Box Office) 1,530 sq. ft.

(Addition and Roof Garden) 929 sq. ft.

 

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

The project included renovation of the existing ticket box office with an addition of 929 square feet for ticket concierge services.

A new roof garden was located on the addition so clientele exiting shows could view the garden on the Ferguson Hall grand stair case.

The project included high performance windows with 43% energy efficiency, recycled carpet, recycled office furniture, and regional drought / frost tolerant plants. It is expected that the roof garden will filter air and water pollutants, minimize heat gain within the building and city, reduce storm water runoff, increase acoustical properties, and extend roof membrane life.

The design and materials selected were based on the owner obtaining a future LEED Existing Building Certification.
