Project Name: Utah Performing Arts Center Location: Salt Lake City, UT Architect: Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, HKS Material: 3 mm Aluminum System: Pohl Europanel System Construction: 2014-current Area of Panels: 22,000 sq. ft.
The Utah Performing Arts Center (also called The New Performing Arts Center) on 135 S. Main Street will include a 2,500-seat theater that will stage major Broadway shows. The Capitol Theatre and Kingsbury Hall each have a seating capacity of around 1,900. Because of the low seating capacity, many blockbuster Broadway productions, such as “The Lion King” and “Wicked,” often appear later in Salt Lake City than in other cities, according to the New Performing Arts Center website. In addition, both venues have challenging load-in, lobby, backstage, seating, parking and concessions logistics for larger touring shows.
For this project Pohl Engineering LLC / Rainscreen Solutions LLC received in 2014 contract for engineering service for custom designed metal panel system based on Pohl Europanel system.
It is also expected to attract other national music, performing arts, comedy and family entertainment.
The center has a construction budget of $114 million. No new taxes are needed. Funding comes from private donations, existing revenue and new development.
The facility will be operated by the county's Center for the Arts, which also owns and operates Abravanel Hall, Capitol Theatre and Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center.
The Utah Performing Arts Center is scheduled to open to the public by the spring of 2016.
