Technical Manual

The StuCo Carpentry Guide was written by Evan Derrow and edited by David Griffin. It contains useful information on the construction of standard flats and platforms.

Build Spaces

Both Arts Alliance and WAVE maintain off campus build garages, which StuCo groups often utilize to build sets. Permission to use of either of these spaces must be obtained in advance from one of the Arts Alliance Technical Directors or the WAVE Technical Directors. Both of these build spaces are adjacent to both University buildings and residential housing, so construction activities are limited to certain daytime hours.
