Theater and Stage Rigging
Lawson Elser has developed experience in the design of stages, performing arts facilities and stage rigging for theatrical projects. We have successfully completed numerous projects involving upgrading as well completely new installations of stage rigging systems within existing theatres. We have also designed rigging systems for new building as well. This is a highly specialized structural engineering field and Lawson Elser has acquired the experience necessary to design these systems for theaters of all sizes and capabilities.
