2011 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

Campus Theater and Bookstore
Georgia College and State Univesity, Milledgeville, Baldwin County

The History
This Art-Deco style theater was opened in 1935 and served as a traditional performance hall for nearly half a century before closing in 1983. The building fell into disrepair and stood mostly empty until Garbutt/Christman LLC was chosen to perform the restoration and adaptive reuse of this historic building. Now, as a black box theater and bookstore, the Campus Theatre will continue to serve the needs of Georgia College and State University as well as the Milledgeville community for years to come.

The Project
The rehabilitation included stabilization of the foundation and creating a new structural steel frame to accommodate a new basement and mezzanine level; exterior restoration of the brick, terra cotta, windows, doors, ticket booth, marquee and entrance tile; and interior restoration of exposed masonry and clay tile, doors, hardwood floors, and plaster walls.
