Gilbane provided construction management services for Deseta Hall, the new performing arts center for Admiral Farragut Academy in St. Petersburg, Florida. The academy is a college-preparatory, private school which offers education for students from Pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.

Deseta Hall features a 302-seat auditorium with a retractable seating system and also encompasses an administrative wing with classrooms, audio-visual rooms and art-specific studios which serve as the home for the music and the arts programs. Deseta Hall provided the entire Farragut community with a center for enhancing the academic and communal experience for its faculty, administration and student body. Features included large and small conference rooms, equipped with the latest audio-visual technology, a workroom and a break room with a kitchenette.
