With Thai commercial developer Natural Park as our client, Alec, as project manager at FDA, worked with Rockwell Group and Akustiks to develop a 2,000-seat theatre for amplified performances such as musical theatre, pop music and Las Vegas style productions. The project was made much more complicated by its location on the fifth floor of a shopping mall with no direct loading. To solve this, we worked with the local consultant to develop a gantry crane to bring 40' long trailers directly into the backstage loading area from the street. A large freight elevator was provided for more conventional deliveries. Unfortunately due to financial and political issues in Thailand, this project was not completed.
