Clancy recently received the
2012 Excellence Award from
Live Design Magazine for the
company's extensive work
at the Kauffman Center
The award - which was in the Venues (Theatrical or Performance)
category - was presented in a ceremony in New York City on Tuesday,
May 22. Marilyn Larsen, Marketing Services Manager, had the honor of
receiving the award on behalf of Clancy, its employees, Theatre Projects
Consultants, and JE Dunn Construction.
"We are always gratified when our work is recognized, but this honor comes
from our peers in the theatre technology community, which makes the
Excellence Award very significant for us," said Mike Murphy, Clancy president.
"We share this honor with the design team on the project, especially the
consultants at Theatre Projects and at Nagata Acoustics, with whom we worked
very closely on a daily basis."
Twelve years of planning and construction led to the opening of the
Kauffman Center, a spectacular 438,500-square-foot steel, marble and
glass complex designed by renowned architect Moshe Safdie.
