Designing for the performing arts provides a great opportunity to focus on many aspects of structural engineering design and to bring them together for a final spectacular space. With structures associated with the performing arts, a heightened awareness is needed of serviceability issues such as vibration, deflection and sound transmission, which can directly and dramatically affect the experience of the audience. In addition to these concerns are the simple geometric demands of the structure such as clear height and clear span of performance halls and the intricate detailing and coordination necessary for balconies, the proscenium opening and fly spaces.
"We have worked with Providence Engineering on many projects and each one has significantly impacted our business by increasing flow and throughput capabilities. They have a great understanding of industrial processes and communicate that in a very clear and effective way. It has been a pleasure working with them over the last 27 years."
