Minimizing Environmental Impact in Design, Manufacture, and Installation of Technology Products and Services

PRG helps you minimize your productions' impact to the environment throughout the design, manufacture, support, and use of our products and services by reusing, recycling, and adopting processes that conserve raw materials and energy. We are committed to recycling of materials, lamps, and other expendable items from our lighting, audio, video, and scenic operations. We recycle used equipment to extend the lives of durable items and minimizing electricity consumption through the efficient design of our lighting and power distribution systems. We use environment-friendly products and practices in the manufacture and maintenance of our products including working to reduce volatile organic compounds in manufacturing and rental operations. 

PRG understands the need to minimize fuel consumption through careful planning and management of logistics. This includes combining orders on trucks whenever possible and transferring inventory between locations to minimize long-distance deliveries. We utilize paperless systems whenever possible for processing bids, notices, purchase orders, and invoices. Our innovative testing and equipment handling equipment and processes reduce test times of equipment to lower electrical consumption while ensuring quality. PRG will also suggest substitutions of more energy-efficient technologies in place of requested technologies whenever the substitutions will fulfill your performance objectives.


Venue Preparation

PRG understands that all scenic elements not only have visual design requirements but also must function flawlessly to completely realize the designer’s vision. PRG works closely with our clients to address the structural issues integral to the scenic elements themselves but also the infrastructure requirements for safe and precise installation the set into the physical space itself. Whether freestanding, rigged, or requiring of more extensive venue preparation PRG’s team of project managers, technical supervisors, and engineers have the experience and knowledge to ensure that scenery transports and loads-in as planned.

Portals and Prosceniums – we have the capabilities to address the structural needs as well as the finish work required for even the most intricate or ornate of pieces. Structures and Armatures – we understand the unique nature of supporting scenic elements, even large, complicated pieces that have to move. Our team of welders, carpenters, and technical designers can solve the support challenges of scenic pieces, props, and full sets, whether installed or touring.

Structural Steel – for applications that need heavy-duty support, we can design, engineer, supply, and install structural steel for either temporary or permanent applications. With in-house engineering and technical designers we can go into a theatre in advance of a production and provide structural support for winches, catwalks, or hanging points for rigging. We add value to the production by solving structural problems that they encounter in different spaces.
