designing smart + safe structures for all industries – everyday
Temporary structures are about movement.
Of a guitarist’s fingers strumming chords. Of the crowd waving their lighters (or cell phone flashlights). And sometimes, movement away from where it all happened. Some venues, events + shows are one night only, and some are taken on the road. Our team designs safe structures made for movement.
Our engineers know how to design permanent structures that make adrenaline rush (but construct the structural calculations to keep entertainers safe).
At Schaefer, we know support. We know that not only does stadium seating need to withstand the weight upon it, but so does the rigging holding the flying acrobat three stories above the stage. Our engineers pioneered thinking outside of the box for entertainment projects and execute it in all 50 states. If you can dream it, we can design it.
