The Miller Theater just won the State’s highest award for historic preservation

The Miller Theater just won the State’s highest award for historic preservation, for “having the greatest impact on historic preservation in the state.”

JLA was very proud to have provided structural design for the Miller Theater restoration. 

Along with the original project, we are currently involved in the structural restoration design of the upper floors in the Miller Arcade.  This will become the Knox Music Institute for the Augusta Symphony with the purpose of encouraging and fostering musical talent of Augusta’s youth.  Although the Theater was built in the 40’s, the Arcade which extends to Broad Street was re-purposed from a building built in the 1800’s. It poses some very interesting structural challenges.
