Erhardt was selected by Central Wesleyan Church to perform architectural improvements to its stage in its main worship center to prepare for the installation of a large audio, visual and lighting overhaul performed by the owner.
On both ends of the platform, Erhardt constructed two, 16-foot-long by 12-foot-high acoustical shell structures to conceal the 10-foot-wide stage doors from the parishioners’ view.
Erhardt installed carpeting on the platform and within the church’s video production room. In the seating area, Erhardt installed in-floor electrical boxes for camera platforms and modified pews to allow these to fit within the space. Erhardt also reconfigured the front face on the back balcony for the installation of two 90-inch confidence monitors.
Three 17-foot-long and 12-foot-thick beams were installed 40 feet above the platform. They were installed to support a driven trolley system composted of 8-inch-thick beams, which suspends a new 60-foot-long by 16-foot-high LED monitor screen. The trolley system is controlled by a motor and drive shaft to move this large monitor back and forth, as well as up and down, above the platform.
