The Korte Company will begin construction of a new performing arts center on the campus of Monrovia High School. The Monroe-Gregg School District recently awarded The Korte Company the 31,000 square foot design-build project through a best value selection process.
OMS Architecture, based out of Indianapolis and The Korte Company partnered to form the Korte/OMS Team and developed the design and construction proposal for the new facility.

Additionally, the new center will include a state-of-the-art sound system, dressing rooms, as well as many of the amenities of a modern performing arts center.
