CAD Services

Create an Accurate Roadmap for Your Project with Precise and Detailed Computer Drawings

Executing the perfect production begins with accurately mapping out the details. In any place where a production will occur, there are multiple considerations that must be thought out well in advance of the show date. This can best be accomplished only after an accurate floor plan is created. CAD drawings are an essential roadmap for all stakeholders involved in putting together your event or production. These precise drawings can help signal obstructions and partitions, exits, ceiling heights, and virtually every other important spatial detail for the designers, planners, production partners, and guests.

Infrastructure & 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 Scenic 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.

Logistics

 How to Get The Right Gear and People, in the Right Place, at the Right Time

Whether transporting personnel and materials, storage, or organizing travel, the logistics required in connection with an event are not to be underestimated. The larger the project or the greater the distance to the venue, the more critical it is to carefully plan, book, and manage material handling, transport, flights, and hotels. The loading, unloading and on-site storage of materials also needs to be organized.  Logistics may also include space planning for the outdoor areas and the scheduling of delivery traffic​​.

There is No Substitute for Experience
Knowing how to effectively pack, manage, ship, and deliver materials while optimizing both delivery timing and costs comes from years of experience. PRG begins logistics planning at the beginning of each project - defining event production solutions that will deliver an exceptional event while keeping an eye on any potential logistics challenges. The result is reduced risks, timely and cost-effective event delivery, and successful events.

With offices on five continents, PRG manages logistics on a global scale and offers complete international solutions. Our global infrastructure covers Europe, North America, South America, Australia, and the Asia Pacific regions.

Pre-Visualization

A Great Tool for Brainstorming, Planning, or Pitching Creative Shows or Events

In many of our facilities, PRG provides dedicated studio space for clients to pre-visualize their lighting, scenic automation, and video in a virtual 3D environment in advance of selecting equipment or producing scenic elements. The primary reasons clients use pre-visualization are to visualize different looks or integrated movement in a virtual environment, to determine the best methods for reaching their design goals, to allow producers to pitch creative ideas to their clients, and to rough-in cue structure for the show in advance of arrival at the show venue.

Projection

THIS COPY IS SPECIFIC FOR THEATRE PROJECTION

Transform Anything into a Video Display Surface - for Events, Exhibits, and Installations

With PRG's projection mapping experts, turn objects such as buildings, vehicles, and scenic staging elements into a display surface for video projection. By using specialized software like PRG’s Mbox Designer software, combined with large format, ultra high resolution video projectors, a two- or three-dimensional object is spatially mapped and digital media is applied to the object so that it visually “wraps” or conforms to the object’s dimensions. We can combine the projected video with, or be triggered by, audio to create an immersive narrative. 

PRG has been involved with some of the most of challenging projection mapping projects in the world. From buildings to industrial equipment on a trade show floor, we have developed solutions for mapping video content onto any surface to help deliver brand messages and wow the audience.
