Client's Goals

Messiah was looking for a state-of-the-art facility that would accommodate enhanced education in the performing arts and special worship services, while also offering a world class performance space for talented students and gifted artists.

Project Details

Clair Solutions provided performance audio and video systems for the new Concert Hall, Recital Hall and Black Box Theatre spaces. We also outfitted the facility with dedicated audio and video systems for instructional rooms designed for instrumental ensembles, choral ensembles and chamber music ensembles. In addition, CS provided a ProTools recording studio, integrated control systems in all spaces, a production intercom, assistive listening systems, and distributed background music and paging systems.

The Clair Solutions Difference

The project timeline was extremely compressed. To that end, it was important to meet with the client to determine specifically what they wanted to achieve and clarify how this would coordinate with the timeline, the existing building infrastructure, and the budget. We then devised a plan to bring the technology up to date while designing and installing AV infrastructure simultaneously. Just-in-time site direction, coordination, and installation of the new systems by CS resulted in functional AV systems that provided solutions for all of their needs. And the cherry on top? Budget was met. The project was completed just in time for the facility's grand opening.
