Bethel Woods Center for the Arts

Project: Construction of Concert Venue & Museum
Location: Bethel, New York
What We Did: Carpentry/Framing Services

Client: Suffolk Construction Company

Owner: Gerry Foundation

Scope of Work: Metal framing of all the exterior and interior walls, ceilings and roof trusses; wood and gypsum sheathing on the exterior walls and roofs; gypsum board installation at all walls and ceilings; batt and rigid insulation; rough and finish carpentry; door and hardware installation; window installation; and acoustical and linear wood ceilings.

About This Project: This project is located on the site of the original 1969 Woodstock Festival in Bethel, NY.

A 65 acre state-of-the-art facility consists of a 4800 seat copper-covered pavilion. Back of house areas provide fully-functioning dressing rooms, offices and technical and support spaces; nine free-standing concession and restroom buildings; and an interpretive center consisting of a museum and event gallery.

The center’s design is focused on aesthetically blending with the surroundings and minimizing physical and visual impact on the original Woodstock site.

A tight schedule was maintained despite the numerous changes to the project scope and materials throughout the project duration. The complexity and challenging nature of the work required a high level of detail and finish.
It was our pleasure to have had the opportunity to be a part of making this world-class venue happen right in our own backyard.

“It’s not often anymore that one can find contractors that are committed to excellence and follow through on what they say. It’s been a true pleasure doing business with you on our most recent project, and I look forward to doing business with you in the future.”
Allen Gerry, Gerry Foundation
