We engineered the MEP systems and commissioned this three-stage theater complex, the Guthrie Theater, in the historic Mills District on the south bank of the Mississippi River in Downtown Minneapolis. The 250,000 square foot facility also has a 25,000 square foot scene shop, classroom space for over 100,000 students who join the Guthrie education programs annually, a parking ramp, food services, skyway and gift shops. We designed the complex to meet the needs and vision of the Guthrie Theater, which is a cultural landmark and a national center for theater performance and education.
