Creative Amphitheater Design-Build Project
When a large, private summer camp wanted to expand their campus to include an amphitheater, our team was up to the task. Working together with our client, we led the construction of a unique, open-air building that could serve as a gathering place for campers and their families, and where a variety of performing arts events could take place.
As one of the few commercial construction companies with amphitheater experience serving the Mid Atlantic states, we were able to create a stylish, modern building that fit with the aesthetic of the camp while providing protection from the elements and the functionality necessary to produce shows and events.
During the design-build process, we worked closely with the camp’s owners to make their initial design idea more efficient and more affordable, and better able to meet their goals for function and aesthetics.
As an indicator of the success of this project, we are pleased to have been awarded the NFBA “Building of the Year” award for this building.
Services provided included:
- Construction management
- Extensive concrete
- Post frame construction
- Interior finishing
Because the site was on a hillside, the project required careful engineering, a creatively designed foundation, and various retaining walls to mitigate water flow around the building.
In addition, the project required stadium-style seating that allowed unobstructed sightlines from every seat in the house. And most importantly, a unique design that included cantilevers, reverse gables, exposed structural elements and creative finishes successfully integrated modern design elements with a traditional outdoor setting.
As a commercial construction company with decades of experience, we were able to help the camp owners use creative post frame construction techniques to generate dramatic savings over a traditional steel frame construction process. And the resulting building features durable materials and high quality construction that will have a low cost of maintenance over time.
