THE FITTON CENTER
FOR CREATIVE ARTS
About: Originally designed by Mike and Cindy in 1993 (SHP) and expanded in 2003 with the Carruthers Center for Arts and Technology (SHP), The Fitton Center is celebrated it’s 20 yr anniversary with a major addition to the theater and a complete refurbishment of the interiors (CDA). The new theater seats 257 people and has upgraded lighting and backstage areas. New furnishings and display systems as well as new finishes throughout the building in galleries, studios, offices, and a complete renovation of the restrooms will position the Fitton Center for the next 20 years. The Fitton Center restrooms, designed by artist Jan Brown Checco and CDA were recently a top 5 finalist in the Cintas “Best Restrooms in America” contest. The project involved careful scheduling of work to allow the Fitton Center to remain in operation during the renovation and addition. In partnership with Messer Construction, who was the Construction Manager of the project, budgets and schedules were created and tracked throughout the project.
