Sandhills Community College Owens Auditorium Facility Assessment and Renovation
CLH provided landscape architecture and civil engineering services associated with the Owens Auditorium renovation at Sandhills Community College. The project began with a facility assessment that evaluated the exterior portions of the building and the development of concept plans for upgrades to the existing courtyard. The concept plans were developed using the SketchUp program to clearly portray the design intent for this courtyard. Once the assessment was complete, CLH developed construction drawings and cost estimates for the courtyard that leads directly to the entrance of the newly renovated auditorium. This courtyard includes seating options, plantings, and solar lighting. It also includes a stage for the community college to have small outdoor performances. This courtyard provides a great space to congregate before and after theater performances and even during intermission. The construction drawings also addressed accessibility issues around the perimeter of the auditorium by providing accessible ramps and a new loading dock for prop distribution.
