Dowling Catholic High School Performing Arts Renovations

Dowling Catholic High School’s Art and Music Departments were badly in need of an upgrade. They were crowded and outdated. Knowing this work needed to be complete during the summer, Dowling once again turned to Graham Construction and RDG Planning & Design. Graham undertook the intense renovation project as soon as school was out for the summer in 2011. The entire Art Department was renovated including classrooms, darkroom, kiln and office.

For the Music Department, Graham finished off some shell space from a previous addition for the band and practice rooms. The old music area was renovated for vocal and drama. In all 18,600 square feet was renovated and ready for the students in the fall of 2011.
