Hi there everyone, I am a the technical director/teacher / all around designer at an arts charter school. I have been given the challenge by my boss to come up with a figure of what it would cost to build ourselves a "real" theater. We are currently operating out of an office bulding that I have spent the last several years turning into a small black box. With our enrollment on the rise we are trying to think ahead to the next step. So here is my problem, I know nothing about this particular aspect of things. I can spec and cost all of the equipment but when it come to the actual building (including a fly tower), the auditorium, having catwalks and such installed I am at a loss. I know I will need to hire contractors and most likely an architect but I am not sure how to find those particular people short of trying to google them (which I have not had much luck with yet). So if there is anyone here with helpful information, maybe you know a person or a company that handles this type of work , I would love to have some help. Thanks so much!
