Field trip to Troy, NY

Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center

Early this spring I was fortunate enough to be given a tour of this grand project. Steve Coats a long time friend and  Project manager for Turner Construction, the GC,  gave me a tour. Over 1 million dollars worth of cedar grace the curved exterior. The theme is of a ship in a bottle. It presented some challenges to say the least. An excellent project and very well done. Many thanks to Steve and Turner Construction.
