Fredericton Performing Arts Centre

The new Fredericton Performing Arts Centre in New Brunswick will serve as a thriving gathering place for the local community. This brand-new, state-of-the-art 72,000-square-foot building will serve as a major focal point of downtown thanks to its location at Regent Street and King Street intersection.

Salas O’Brien is designing the facility’s MEP, telecommunications, security, and lighting. The venue will have two theatres, one 850-seater and one 300-seater, with shared back-of-house, backstage, and loading rooms. This new structure will offer up a world of fascinating possibilities for everyone to enjoy, including huge touring acts, ballet and Broadway, music of all genres, and local arts groups.

It is going to be a prominent building, a prominent public building, and it’s certainly going to add to the energy of the provincial capital’s central business district.
