Entertainment Division

As the entertainment industry evolves, our Entertainment Division follows suit in taking the ideas and concepts of our clients and making them a reality. This process challenges our engineers and designers to push technical limits without compromising aesthetics. We are responsible for incorporating clients' ideas, while maintaining the functionality, structural soundness and durability of the mechnical components - including electrical, control system, and safety requirements.

With an effective, assembly-line approach to entertainment projects, we are able to mix metal, machine, and engineering expertise to create complex, mechanized stages and show-action effects. Design of such systems require a combination of practical experience and advanced modeling capabilities. But above all, it requires the ability to capture a mental picture and carefully, elegantly, apply theory and mathematics.

In short, our Entertainment Engineering team features experts in the design of structures and mechanical systems for performance venues, entertainment productions, and much more. Whatever the notion, we will select the materials, develop the specifications, and establish the construction method needed to make it work.
