Oct '11 - Apr '14
Yesterday evening we presented our design for The Masonic Amphitheatre to the Clifton Forge community. Eighty-five people arrived at The Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Heritage Center despite the rain to learn about our project and give us feedback. We were pleased by their enthusiastic response.
In the next few days we will be submitting construction documents to Draper Aden and Associates. Upon approval they will be passed on to the building inspector who will provide us with the permits necessary to begin construction. We are looking forward to beginning prefabrication in Blacksburg then returning in April to assemble the amphitheatre.
The Virginia Tech design/buildLAB is a Project Based Experiential Learning program focused on the research, development and implementation of innovative construction methods and architectural designs. Students collaborate with local communities and industry experts to conceive and realize built architecture projects that are both educational and charitable in nature. The blog is run by design/buildLAB students who are designing and building a fieldhouse for the Clifton Forge Little League.
