The City of Carrollton commissioned RA-LIN to create its downtown cultural arts center under a design/build contract. The showcase of the center is a 350-seat theatre with state-of-the-art acoustical sound, a large stage and a sophisticated lighting control room. Musicals, dramas and comedy theatrical performances and entertainment events for children are held by both traveling companies and local productions. In addition, there are four classrooms, a large chorus rehearsal room, a theatre rehearsal room, and a lobby and ticket center. Each classroom is large enough to accommodate approximately 40 chairs and a number of tables in a classroom setup or in a square for the board room setup. The center also houses catwalks and a large art gallery to display paintings and other artworks for the many shows held at the center for both professional and amateur artists.
RA-LIN provided pre-construction services, value engineering, schedule control, budget control and full construction management services for the cultural arts center and worked closely with Alex Roush on the final design.
