Lakeview Amphitheater

C&S was the program, project, and construction manager and completed the bridging design documents for the $50 million Lakeview Amphitheater and events center. The project received a 2016 Platinum ACEC New York Engineering Excellence Award. Sited on a former industrial hazardous waste site on the shores of Onondaga Lake, the site has spectacular lake views and minimizes environmental and noise impacts to the community. More than 75 acres of contaminated property were remediated to support the four-story, 41,000-square-foot structure that accommodates 17,500 attendees. The stage supports a wide variety of performances and contains support spaces for event crews. A multi-use events center holds functions up to 300 people year-round. The venue is adjacent to the NYS Fairgrounds and holds its official concerts. This was one of only two municipal projects in New York that received permission to use design-build procurement. Design and construction were completed in a compressed timeframe, meeting all deadlines and coming in under budget. Concept design, permitting, bridging design, and design-build contractor procurement were completed in under eleven months. C&S later designed a concessions building to serve patrons during concerts.
