LA ProPoint has completed several major projects in 2020 while overcoming the pandemic and respecting COVID restrictions.
At the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA, LA ProPoint was charged with the design, fabrication and installation of massive custom hanging box truss structures and supporting equipment that are used to mount lighting and audio instruments for the playing field and grandstands. Owing to the unique nature of the stadium roof, and its immense scale, the instruments are not accessible either by catwalks or any other permanent static structure. Instead, they float in space and at great height, suspended in the labyrinth of the roof structural cables. LA ProPoint’s work encompassed structural engineering, automation design, fabrication within rigorous design tolerances, and a rigging installation environment of colossal heights and overall scale.
LA ProPoint also completed renovations and upgrades at the 500-seat Mandell Weiss Theatre, one of the La Jolla Playhouse performance spaces located on the University of California San Diego campus. Once they were able to mobilize, LA ProPoint installed a new motorized fire curtain, a counterweight rigging system, safety nets, and a custom rolling hatch door with removable guard rails. These upgrades brought safety and reliability up to modern day standards, as well as added new flexibility and functionality to the theater rigging systems and infrastructure.
For the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, LA ProPoint completed work in two theaters in Los Angeles. Concept design was provided by architect Renzo Piano, and the Renzo Piano Building Workshop. LA ProPoint worked with the architect and theater consultant while completing the detailed design, fabrication, and installation. In each theater, LA ProPoint installed innovative, complex, curved projection screens complete with automated screen masking systems that provide the ability to frame any size image, at any aspect ratio, and locate it anywhere on the screen. The result is a one of kind theater experience, visible only at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.
“Even in the midst of a global pandemic, we persevered and were able to complete several significant projects, all while respecting COVID restrictions and ensuring the health and safety of our workers,” said Mark Riddlesperger, President of LA ProPoint. “With innovation and imagination, we were able to honor our resiliency and commitment to our clients. We are looking forward to audiences seeing these venues in the near future.”
