Hutton first worked with Tabor College in 2013, replacing stairs and walkways to two dorms on campus. They were asked back in 2016 to complete the largest construction project in school history — the creation of a new performing arts center.
Hutton built a two-story center that features an 830-seat auditorium, 150-seat black box theater, scene shop, dressing rooms and more for the theater. Then there was the art gallery and photo labs, ceramics shop, painting and drawing classrooms and recording studios and rehearsal rooms.
One highlight from the project was the acoustics Hutton achieved through the design and build of the auditorium. The space features a one-of-a-kind variable acoustic system that allows for crystal clear sound with no distracting echoes.
