The Majestic Theater and Bolduc Block building on Main Street in Conway Village was purchased by local non-profit music school Mountain Top Music Center in 2015. In 2016 after launching the largest capital campaign to date in the Mount Washington Valley, board members and senior staff contacted Bergeron Technical Services to assist the organization with bringing their plans to life. The plan: Convert the former office spaces on the second floor of the Block building into Mountain Top Music Center’s new school. Reconfigure the first floor of the block to provide a common access for the school, tenant spaces and Theater, and prepare the four existing tenant spaces to be leased out to local businesses. Renovate the gutted out Majestic Theater into a flexible performance arts space. And make it all accessible.
Bergeron Technical provided Mountain Top Music with full design and administrative services including creating existing conditions plans, developing architectural plans with the assistance of SISR Architecture, developing systems plans and specifications, design of accessible features; a platform lift installed to access the music school on the second story, accessible seating design in the theater, accessible entry to the theater stage and multiple accessible restrooms, design of sound attenuating partitions, project permitting through various agencies, and project administration services from the construction bidding process through receipt of the Certificate of Occupancy.
In September of 2019 Mountain Top Music Center opened for the 2019-2020 school year in their new home. The second story of the Bolduc Block has provided the school with a 30% larger space, and with the completion of the Majestic Theater renovation the organization will have it’s own in-house performance space. Bergeron Technical is proud to have been involved in the renovation and restoration of this integral part of Conway Village and a great piece of the Mount Washington Valley’s history.
