Our designs are incorporated into Performing Arts Theatres, Churches, Educational and Athletic Facilities, Government and Corporate Facilities, and a diversity of other facility types.     Architectural Infrastructure for Technology  We help your architect design spaces that work for the technology by designing the infrastructure into the building to accommodate the systems in each space.  We critique room geometries and architectural features to ensure good hearing, viewing, sound, and lighting coverage, and adequate space for technology equipment and operation.  We define the electrical, structural, and mechanical systems requirements for proper operation of sound, video, lighting, and rigging systems.  We work with your building design team to incorporate this technology infrastructure into the design of the building.   Systems Design and Procurement  We design sound, video, lighting, and rigging systems that will serve the users needs and match the acoustics and geometric features of the individual spaces in the facility.  We  provide component level systems drawings, documentation, and specifications for bidding and procurement purposes.     Construction Management and Testing  We help manage the construction and systems installation, performing on-site inspections and testing to make sure everything is built and installed as intended.   Design-Build    We also offer Design-Build options that provide single-source design, sales, and installation of acoustical treatments as well as sound, audio-visual, theatrical lighting, and stage rigging systems.              6112 N Mesa Street Suite 7200 El Paso, TX  79912    888-881-5345 7900 International Drive Suite 300 - International Plaza  Minneapolis, MN  55425  612-332-5345
