Cleveland Construction was contracted as the design-builder to restore and enhance the notable characteristics of the Masonic Cleveland Auditorium while providing a revival to this historic entertainment venue.
Originally built in 1918, the Masonic Cleveland Auditorium underwent various improvements to the building’s main theater, box office, stage, restrooms, corridors, lower lobby entrance, exterior facade, and Grand Foyer.
The renovations within main theater included repainting and carefully-restored plaster on the ceiling, new carpet, wood refinishing, and reupholstering 1,682 seats. Additional renovations included MEP improvements and LED lighting throughout the building, door hardware replacement, painting, tile repairs, and low voltage upgrades for venue equipment.
Life Safety improvements that were made throughout the building include egress doors, fire escape repairs, standpipe recertification, and lighting upgrades.
Exterior facade improvements included new storefront doors and egress lighting. Substantially cracked and missing bricks on the exterior were replaced to create a weather-tight building. Mortar tuckpointing technique was used to match the weathered brick hue and maintain the historic aesthetics of the building.
Cleveland Construction ensured that the enhancements improved the visitor experience without compromising the beauty of this historic entertainment venue.
