Kent School

Music Department & Mattison Auditorium

SLAM CS provided Design Build services for the Kent School to design and renovate an existing 25,000 SF music and auditorium building. The final auditorium space, which seats 350, is multi-functional and used for music, theater, lectures, and movies. Additionally, a new gallery space and lobby create an interior link between the dining hall and auditorium. An elevator tower was constructed to connect the lower level of the theater spaces, the main floor art gallery, theater, dining hall, and the third-floor music department.

This renovation project presented many construction and sequencing challenges. Through a unique approach of integrated design and construction, the SLAM team anticipated challenges and incorporated design solutions into the bid documents.

SLAM CS developed a phasing and sequencing plan that communicated to contractors project constraints, allowing the campus to continue operations and deliver successful project expectations.
