O'Donnell & Naccarato provided structural engineering services for Malvern Preparatory School's new, 2-story, 29,000 SF steel-framed Fine & Performing Arts Center. The center is home to Malvern Prep's expansive performing arts department providing studios, classrooms and shared space for several disciplines including acting, fine arts, photography, computer graphics, ceramics, sculpture, and music.

The main feature of the center is its 604-seat performing arts theater, which accommodates an additional 150 on-stage seats when necessary. The theater includes an orchestra pit, state-of-the-art fly tower stage rigging, plus lighting and performance audio systems.

In 2008, the Performing Arts Center project received ABC Southeast's Award of Excellence.
