Work included addition of new reinforced concrete shear walls and foundations, construction of new lobby and exit facility spaces, seismic bracing of the existing ornate plaster ceiling and unreinforced brick façade. Scope of work also included demolition and reconstruction of a 10,000-square-foot rehearsal wing while preserving the existing brick façade.
