Blount, Inc., builder of, amongst other major facilities, the New Orleans Superdome, was chosen as the construction company that would build the Center. Blount began the 36 month construction schedule in September of 1989.
They were joined by New York-based Artec Consultants' Russell Johnson, who designed the pristine acoustics of the main concert hall.
In September of 1992, the Kravis Center doors opened to an anxiously awaiting community.
The system entailed the installation and engineering of a high quality state of the art theatrical sound, communications, video, audience recall, and cabling system.
Principal features of this 2,200-seat facility include remote mixing positions, an acoustics design with a noise floor of NC-14, and features of a very elegant concert and Broadway stage facility.
