    DeVos Performance Hall

    DeVos Performance Hall is a 2,400-seat performing arts theatre that is home to The Grand Rapids Symphony, The Grand Rapids Ballet Company, Broadway Theatre Guild and Opera Grand Rapids. DeVos Performance Hall provides an intimate setting for these Grand Rapids arts groups as well as other touring concerts and family shows.

    DeVos Hall received a new exterior fa├žade, lobby addition, a new elevator and finishes inside the Keeler Lobby; and complete interior renovation of the performance hall, including re-upholstered seating, suspended catwalks, balcony fronts, and a new lighting scheme.

    Construction activities were closely coordinated with the client’s schedule of activities to eliminate the chance of conflict between users and builders. The interior renovation of the performance hall was fast-tracked to allow completion in just three months to fit between two previously scheduled events. The key to success for this project was the extensive Pre-Construction planning and scheduling that it demanded.
