Completion Date


Jindra Fine Arts Building, a Peru State College project, completely reorganized this 28,000-square-foot building interior to provide better functionality, building code, and ADA guideline upgrades to meet current standards and provide energy-efficiency improvements. College staff and administration were heavily involved in the planning and design of this building to accommodate fine-arts functions on the campus and building code upgrades.

The renovated building includes:

•A new black-box theater that also serves as a storm shelter.

•Enlarged band and choir rooms.

•Individual practice rooms.



•A recording studio.

Improved acoustical performance was a major factor in the success of this project.

The renovation was designed to make the building energy-efficient. A ground-loop heat-pump system was installed for heating and cooling the building, and natural light was introduced into many spaces throughout the building with the addition of windows and solar-tubular devices in classrooms.
