Overview

Heavy Industries facilitated the design, fabrication and installation of specially designed acoustic panels and structural steel frameworks for Mount Royal University's Bella Concert Hall.

Goals

Ultimately, Heavy was responsible for the curved panels at the back of the stage, the panels hanging from the ceiling (the rose), the panels that line the balconies (with embed lights), the structural steel that holds everything in place and for working with the acoustical technician on the final tweaking and adjustments of the panel orientation. This ensures that the Bella Concert Hall is a world class performance space that attracts musicians from all over the world.

Process

Heavy was hired by MRU on a design assist basis to work with Pfeiffer Partners Architects to help finalize the design and to provide leadership with respect to fabrication. Heavy was then hired by CANA construction to manufacture, supply and install the panels.
