Bard College Fisher Performing Arts Center

Bard College’s extraordinary new Performing Arts Center is a combination of artistic expression and technical achievement. Designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry, this facility includes a conventional 1,000 seat theater, a 400 seat black box theater, a concert shell and forestage lift, and full flying systems for scenery. Building this kind of ground-breaking architectural design tested the limits of construction methods and materials.

Our project team developed innovative construction management solutions, including laser surveying techniques and 3D computer modeling. DOC’s project management staff created project-specific electronic and web-based methods to communicate with team members across the country.
