Myer Horowitz Theatre

Edmonton, Alberta

Project Description

The renovation of the Myer Horowitz Theatre is a multifaceted project that encompasses a thorough overhaul of the existing theatre infrastructure. This includes a complete update of the theatre chamber, sound booths, projection rooms, catwalks, change rooms, and washrooms. Additionally, the project entails the renovation and expansion of the two-story lobby, which will be equipped with new stairwells and an elevator. Given the scope of these additions, the existing structure will undergo extensive structural enhancements to support the new configurations.

A critical and complex aspect of this project involves the addition of a large electrical vault under the existing building's slab on grade. This component requires meticulous shoring, underpinning, low clearance excavation, and screw piling within the confines of the building. A significant challenge of this project is ensuring that the Student Union Building (SUB) remains fully functional and operational throughout the construction phase, necessitating strategic planning and execution to minimize disruptions.
