On August 15, 2017, a press conference was held at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) in downtown Denver to unveil the newly refurbished Space Theatre — one of Weifield’s recently completed projects with General Contractor, Turner Construction! Construction for this project was completed by Weifield’s Special Projects division over a period of 17 months and was led by Weifield Field Supervisor, Michael Arledge, and Project Manager, Clay Smith.
The nearly 40-year-old venue was completely gutted and rebuilt in 2017 to enhance the world-class experience for audiences and artists alike. The new 380-seat theatre now features: 1) Modern acoustic treatments specifically tuned for the spoken word, 2) New seating configuration featuring two levels, greater main floor availability, increased intimacy and more wheelchair and companion seating, 3) New lobby area with one main entry point into The Joan And Phill Berger Auditorium, 4) State-of-the art lighting and new, accessible control booths, 5) Elevator inside the theatre to easily access the main seating level, and 6) A suite of additional patron restrooms, nearly doubling the theatre’s previous restroom capacity.
Attending the press conference were several City of Denver staff and DCPA supporters/patrons, as well as Denver mayor, Michael Hancock. Weifield was specifically mentioned at the event by DCPA VP of Facilities Management/Event Services, Clay Courter, for our outstanding work on the project.
Hats off to our DCPA Space Theatre crew for a fantastic project!
