The Theater in the Wild is an outdoor, covered performance space located in a major Orlando theme park. The project consists of three separate buildings. The performance building is a 50-foot-tall open facility of structural steel and themed cement plaster. An audience of up to 1,400 can enjoy performances rain or shine, thanks to a 20,000-square-foot tensile membrane roof that reaches over six stories high. Area restrooms are alongside the performance building in a 1,400-square-foot structural steel building with cement plaster exterior. Approximately 4,300 square feet of dressing room space is provided via modular trailers located behind the performance building.
Construction of the backstage dressing rooms presented a unique opportunity when it was realized that the supplier of these units was unable to provide the required level of quality. The PCL team got directly involved in the solution, working with the supplier and his third-party vendor to ensure what was specified in the contract was provided. PCL’s efforts brought the project in on time with no disruption to the schedule.
