GEVA Theater Renovations Complete

Friday, September 23, 2016

Congratulations to GEVA Theater on the completion of their seven-year, $11million renovation.  The renovation transformed Geva into a dynamic, world-class cultural asset serving people from all over the country, providing exceptional arts and cultural programs and contributing to the economic vibrancy of the region.  In 2009, Geva was awarded $2 million for capital improvement and restoration on the 1868 building. This funding allowed Initial renovations to proceed in 2009 with improved Box Office and Restrooms, Roof Replacement and Production Equipment Enhancements (2010), followed by Masonry Restoration (2011), Window and Door Restoration/Replacement (2012), Acoustical Enhancements (2013), Accessibility Improvements (2013) and HVAC Replacement (2013 and 2014). Geva worked with SWBR Architects, LaBella Associates and The Pike Company on the delicate exterior restorations.
