Angelus Temple Seismic Repair

Overview

The renovation of this sanctuary which is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places included seismic retrofit and architectural restoration. McCormick managed the upgrade of the acoustical and audio/visual systems; as well as, the redesign of the stage to include a structural steel moment frame to support line array speakers and custom light trusses. Throughout the construction the historic preservation features of the building were maintained, while upgrading to today’s standard for worship services and productions. Installations of a unique cable and rigging system in a wheel spoke scheme, suspended just below the historic dome, supported acoustical baffle “clouds” designed to resolve acoustical challenges.
