McPherson Opera HouseLocation: McPherson, Kansas Owner: McPherson Opera House Architect: ADS Architects Construction: Eby Construction
Prior to construction on the McPherson Opera House, the project team (made up of the owner, architect and Eby Construction) worked together on design and pre-construction services for over seven months to discuss current and future issues related to safety, budget, quality and schedule. Issues were discussed early on to promote innovative solutions resulting in a lower risk of cost overruns and delays.
With multiple conceptual estimates and plan revisions required for the individual phases of work, the project required flexibility and extensive communication between Eby, the subcontractors and the architect to complete the desired vision. Plans, materials and methods were re-evaluated almost daily. The McPherson Opera House had its re-grand opening exactly 121 years after its initial grand opening.
