Adolfson & Peterson Construction wraps construction on two projects at University of North Texas

Adolfson & Peterson Construction completed two projects with the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas.

The Jazz Lab renovation included updating 3,932 square feet of space within the Music Building. The project encompassed acoustical performance improvements, interior renovations, the addition of instructional technology with recording/webcasting capabilities and new furnishings, along with HVAC and ADA compliance modifications. The area serves as rehearsal space for the university’s nine jazz lab bands, including the seven-time Grammy-nominated One O’Clock Lab Band®, as well as four vocal jazz ensembles.

AP also constructed UNT’s Advanced Air Mobility (UAAM) Test Center, a 120′ length x 300′ width x 80′ height netted facility supporting research in unmanned air systems and ground autonomous vehicles. A contained facility, the Air Mobility Lab creates all-weather conditions with full FAA compliance, enabling testing and analysis of Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle (UAV) physical robustness and safety criteria including hard-ground impact, collisions, and effects of high-speed maneuvers on flight dynamics and controls.

This facility is part of UNT’s Center for Integrated Intelligent Mobility Systems (CIIMS), which was established in 2020. CIIMS brings together various expertise, including engineering and business, around intelligent mobility, such as autonomous flight, ground vehicles and the systems that enable their deployment.

Smith Group is the Music Lab project architect, while Walter P Moore serves as the architect for the Air Mobility Lab.
