    The Neenan Archistruction team helped bring the MAC from renderings to reality – through a virtual reality tour!

    Mapleton staff and Global Leadership Academy students participated in the exciting virtual reality tour, getting a sneak peek of what the building will look and feel like once completed. From the 900-seat auditorium to the many arts-focused classrooms – including orchestra, choir, and music classrooms – participants were blown away.

    With building permits completed, the construction phase is expected to begin within the next few weeks. The MAC is expected to open in 2021.
