Projects can be separated into phases of needs analysis, engineered solution and implementation. These simple phases belie the tremendous difficulty experienced in design and construction projects for performance venue facilities, and undersell the complexity of human dynamics required for the successful delivery of these projects. Case studies of performance venues will be presented, accompanied by discussion of the technical, process and people challenges implicit in each. Also discussed will be the common characteristics of engineers who successfully deliver these projects.
