Prince George Community College

Center for Performing Arts Renovation & Addition

Largo, Maryland

We worked with Prince George’s Community College on the renovation and addition to the Queen Anne Academic [Performing Arts] Center. Centrally located on campus, the new center transforms the nature of the arts at the Community College and creates for it a new image and identity, providing a welcoming gateway for visitors and students alike. The scope of the project includes the renovation of approximately 16,030 sf of space and the addition of approximately 157,588 sf of space to the existing Queen Anne Fine Arts Building to provide spaces for a new dance major in the Theater curriculum and significantly expand spaces to improve and transform the curricula of Music, Theater, Speech, Television, Radio, and Film on campus.
