Boise State University Center for Fine Arts Grand Opening
ESI was selected to be the construction manager on the new Fine Arts building on the Boise State University campus. The five story building brings fine arts students, currently scattered throughout five buildings on campus, into one location.
The facility includes studios for each artistic medium, such as ceramics or painting, multiple classrooms, and a high-tech World Museum. This will enable students and visitors to “virtually” visit many world-class museums around the world.
Specialized environmental and exhaust systems are necessary in order to clean the air of indoor pollutants and to contain hazardous materials used for certain types of art production. Specialty rooms include: chemical enamel rooms, press-room/lithography with acid room, indoor wood shop, spray booth, darkroom, indoor kiln rooms, indoor foundry, and a material fabrication room (sculpture).
