The Avon PAC project was to address overcrowding in the existing high school. The expanded kitchen and commons areas were modernized to meet the needs of students, while the performing arts center included a large seating capacity, a spacious stage area, and attention to technology, acoustics, and lighting. The design incorporated additional storage space, a new main entrance closer to the parking area, and an administrative area. It also allowed for the flexibility of utilizing the existing smaller school auditorium, creating two distinct spaces within the performing arts center for community events.
