BU Booth Theatre

Sunrise was honored to play a role in the completion of this exciting addition to the Boston University campus — the Joan & Edgar Booth Theatre and College of Fine Arts Production Center.

We teamed up with BOND Brothers, Inc. and Elkus Manfredi Architects in a design-assist format with the goal of bringing the conceptual design to reality. In the months leading up to the project, Sunrise assisted Elkus and Bond by providing all of the exterior facade details, and ultimately collaborated on the final design of the building — a process that resulted in a beautiful new center for the students of Boston University!

The award-winning entrance design features a custom structural point supported glass wall system with laminated glass fin supports installed at a 14-degree tilt — a challenging install flawlessly executed by our crew!

Project scope included: aluminum curtainwall, aluminum storefront, aluminum entrances and hardware, custom all-glass suspension system, corrugated metal panels, composite metal panels, Ipe siding, custom Ipe louvers, Kalwall, air and vapor barrier, exterior framing and insulation, and UHPC exoskeleton.

Materials provided by Sentech Architectural Systems, LLC, Tecnoglass, CENTRIA, Arconic Architectural Products, General Woodcraft, Inc., Kalwall Corporation, Kenseal Construction Products, Airolite, Roxul Inc. and YKK.
