Excellence in Craftsmanship

University of the Arts School of Music Relocation

Project Description

Dubbed the “quietest recording studio in Philadelphia” by Philadelphia-based Metropolitan Acoustics, the University of the Arts’ new School of Music (SoM) boasts high-performance, state-of-the-art music facilities. C. Erickson and Sons served as the Construction Manager and General Contractor for the SoM’s relocation, renovation and fit-out. For the University’s SoM, “quality” equated to “performance.” Erickson’s skilled craftsmen performed the installation of critical finished elements and many acoustical components of the project. While the installation quality of finishes should be highlighted for their own merits, the quality of the work hidden behind these finishes truly brings the value to the finished product.
