Located in the heart of Brooklyn, the iconic BAM Theater, formerly known as the Majestic Theater, opened its doors in 1904. It served as the venue and proving ground for numerous Broadway productions. In 1942, the Majestic became a first-run movie house before it was abandoned in the 1960’s.
Approximately 20 years later, a gentleman by the name of Harvey Lichtenstein discovered this gem and began to stage productions there. Subsequently, Mr. Lichtenstein raised funds for an entire renovation and transformation of the structure that was completed in 1987. In his honor, it was renamed the BAM Harvey Theater in 1999.
The surrounding neighborhood has since been redeveloped with plans to also refurbish the Arts Center itself. The building and street corner will be expanded to eventually include a connection to a high-rise condominium that is currently under design. Architectural Resource Consultants (ARC) was hired to process the client’s provided registered scan data. ARC proceeded to model various building components including architectural elements and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) equipment elements. A level of development (LOD) of 200 was used for the deliverable. Note: The intent of the LOD was to provide a moderate level of information in order to represent the buildings geometry, space volume, ceiling grids, line work and other specifics. Post-process modeling consisted of the buildings exterior envelope, interior architecture, and structural systems.
