The Grady Gammage Memorial Auditorium Improvements project consisted of an 8,025-square-foot theater addition to the main auditorium located on the Arizona State University campus in Tempe, AZ. The facility functions as a multipurpose performing arts center and cultural center. The project features two five-stop machine room-less traction elevators, a 92-stall women’s restroom, sprinkler systems, and fire alarm systems. Construction consisted of a foundation of grade beams on caissons, a steel structural frame, and a PVC membrane roof. The exterior was constructed of brick veneer and metal wall panels, ground concrete floors with exposed aggregate sides, and new rosecrete exterior finishes. As the last publicly commissioned building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, CORE understood the need for great care to preserve the building’s heritage during the renovation. Due to our successful renovation planning, the Grady Gammage Memorial Auditorium continues to remain a significant architectural, historical, and cultural icon to Arizona State University.
