L. Douglas Wilder Performing Arts Center

Norfolk State University, Norfolk, Virginia

We recently completed contract documents for this project, which included renovations to the auditorium space. The L. Douglas Wilder Performing Arts Center currently seats 1,800 people and has curvilinear and elegant designs. The Wilder Center also has a full theatrical stage; atrium; three large conference rooms with overhead projector, projection screen, teleconferencing capabilities; administrative space; and a kitchen/catering area for large meetings/events. In addition, Acoustic Experts have worked to increase sound quality, which will now match the most well-known venues of this size.
