Pulliam Community Building Foundation

Goals

 

The vision for the Pulliam Community Building Foundation is to put the community of Loveland back into the facility. It is a gem of an asset that begs to be repurposed and used again.

 

The main goal now that we are about to enter Phase I construction is to create further awareness and gain support for Phase II. We will begin a capital campaign soon to complete our vision of a mixed-use community space for the broadest segment of Loveland.

 

The project has these primary goals:

 

* remove fixed seating in the auditorium; repair and refinish the floor as needed

* add new cooling and more efficient heating systems throughout facility

* upgrade electrical wiring

* add an audio system in auditorium

* make ADA compliance improvements

* meet current fire and building code requirements

* provide portable, flexible seating and table systems

* add exterior lighting and upgrade landscaping

* remodel to improve overall aesthetics of building

Here are the top five priorities we seek to accomplish:

Refurbish - to enhance the architecture and improve the aesthetics and comfort of the guests.

Revive - the building so that it lives and breathes again

 

Repurpose - the auditorium from a one dimensional theatrical setting into a multipurpose space that can host a myriad of events.
