• Phase 4: Construction

Scope of Work

  • All students deserve the chance to perform on Broadway! Mapleton's future arts center will feature an auditorium with seating for 900 people, indoor and outdoor performance areas, classroom space, and so much more. Construction will begin in November of 2019 and the building is expected to open in 2021.

    • On the Broadway Campus, the Mapleton Arts Center (MAC) is continuing progress inside! With most of the drywall installed, crews are working on interior finishes, including paint and tiling.
    • At this stage, the ticket booth, concession stand, and theatre stage are more visible than ever!
    • On the second floor, Kalwall translucent wall panels are installed, bringing natural lighting to the orchestra and band classrooms. 
    • In the next few weeks, crews will continue their progress with interior finishes and the floors.

    • Exterior finishes on the Mapleton Arts Center (the MAC) provide a beautiful splash of color and a glimpse into the future look of the district’s new Performing Arts hub!
    • After insulating the exterior, crews are now adding burnt orange and gray tiles outside the building, complementing the eye-catching glass wall.
    • Near the campus-facing entry, crews are prepping for the first concrete pour of the outdoor performance stage once the weather permits.
    • Inside the building, drywall is complete in select classrooms, allowing for paint in the choir, dance, orchestra, and Black Box rooms. 
    • In the next few months, crews will begin to add Kalwall translucent wall panels to the second-floor rooms, the same unique material found at the Global Intermediate Academy library.
    • In the 900-seat auditorium, progress to the upper balcony and control room drywall will soon be visible, as well as acoustic finishes throughout the interior spaces.
    • The building is set to open in the fall of 2021 and will serve all Mapleton students and our community.

    • At the Mapleton Arts Center (MAC), crews are finished with the underground electrical work and will wrap up plumbing by the end of the month.
    • The large, two-story dirt pile is now down to mere feet and almost completely removed from the site.
    • Crews will soon begin pouring the concrete slab for the foundation and the building is expected to go vertical at the beginning of April! 
    • The MAC will serve students district-wide and is scheduled to be open in 2021.
