Hathaway Dinwiddie built Phase I and II of the School of Cinematic Arts building. Phase I consisted of the complete construction of a 4-story academic building over a subterranean level on the campus. The building houses several key functions consistent with the production of film and television media including sound and mix labs, theaters as well as other special teaching facilities and office spaces. Phase II consisted of the complete construction of four new structures: a new instructional building and three buildings housing sound stages, a central services area, and the production equipment center. Both phases were designed and built to aesthetically relate.
