SDSU Performing Arts Center

Brookings, SD

Creative Surfaces completed the custom commercial millwork project for the SDSU Performing Arts Center in Brookings, SD. Home of the Jackrabbits, this project was a major re-construction we did in Fall 2017. Let’s take a look at the completed project.

Starting with the entrance and ticket box office. Here you’ll see wall panels of 3/4″ Birch overlay with painted black edges. We installed each panel with a 1/2″ reveal between each panel. Inside the 4-window box office are custom cabinets built using Formica “Bleached Legno” plastic laminate with countertops of Corian “Hazelnut” solid surface. The exterior of the windows are trimmed with Birch and stained to match the wall panels. Each window opening has a protruding countertop of Corian “Hazelnut” as well.

In the costume shop, coat room, dressing rooms, orchestra & band storage rooms, and classrooms we built cabinets using Nevamar “Whispering Wind” plastic laminate with Corian “Hazelnut” countertops. Watch the orchestra practice by peeking into the room through the large round windows with jambs and casings of Poplar painted Benjamin Moore “Olivetint”. In the band rehearsal hall is a group of ceiling clouds. Each cloud is 8′ x 3.5′, built using 1″ x 6″ pine boards and glued together end to end then stained and finished with a laquer. 45 complete units were built and suspended from the ceiling at an angle using aircraft cable.

The recital and performance hall showcases a new handrail of Poplar stained to match wall panels. A total of 53 window sills of varying lengths made of solid surface Corian “Natural Gray” were installed in various locations throughout this custom commercial millwork project.
