One of NY’s hottest new shows, the Hairy Ape, opened in the 55,000 square foot Drill Hall at the Park Avenue Armory on March 25, 2017. McLaren worked with the production team at the Armory and their subcontractors to ensure that the elements of the show, that are accessible to the public, are structurally adequate and safe for the show’s run through April 22, 2017. McLaren assessed the structural and life-safety components of the massive Steeldeck seating riser done by Steeldeck New York, as well as the 140 foot diameter turntable provided by Hudson Scenic Studios.
