The steel framing in performing arts centers always presents unique challenges to the designer, detailer and fabricator alike. The project contained huge trusses spanning over 100’-0” with large amounts of camber to account for deflection which supported complex hung balconies.

Prodraft assembled a large team of detailers who worked diligently with other project team members to resolve challenges with the extremely complex framing conditions while maintaining the best schedule possible as problems were resolved. In portions of the structure, every joint was unique with multiple members framing to the same workpoints. The project size, coupled with the individualized connections resulted in a tremendous amount of customized modeling and detailing work.
