What’s up (and down) at the Lab Theater?

Work is well underway on our renovation designs for the Minnesota Opera’s Lab Theater. And some early stages of construction have begun.

The Lab’s stage sits 2 ½ stories below street level. One piece of the overall project is the addition of a new large lift to transport equipment, scenery and other items needed for the theater’s operation.

The project team decided to install this elevator sooner rather than later — so it could be used to move construction equipment and materials. That’s going to dramatically increase the efficiency of the renovation process.

Here’s a look at the beginnings of the new lift. Crews are also shoring up a wall that had some structural issues posing safety risks at the site. We look forward to seeing more of our design and architecture work take shape in this space. Before long, we’ll share additional details about this exciting project.
