The Heartland Amphitheatre was designed as a 60’ x 60’ structure to be used as an entertainment venue for a centrally Oklahoma tribe. It included an open-end but required a bonnet covering that would keep the performers and the stage system dry. There was a need for a partition wall to create a private backstage environment complete with dressing rooms and staging areas for equipment and performers alike. The client required the structure from design to completion to take less than 60 days.
Signature worked immediately to design an open-ended structure complete with a foundation that would meet uplift and code requirements of the Oklahoma wind load. Due to the open ends, the bonnet system had to be customized to meet requirements. The partially enclosed back end required the design of wind vent panels to accommodate gusts of wind that could occur. The bonnet was included computer-generated graphics to showcase the logo and name of the facility. Our construction team began erecting the structure prior to the interior layout being completed and a black partition current was used to create a private space for the entertainers. Signatures crew modified and worked on-site with our engineers to develop a finishing detail of the end wall and partition wall that exceeded the Tribe and the General Contractors expectations. With an aggressive construction schedule, a quality product delivered under budget and quicker than required, Signature again added another satisfied client to its portfolio.
60 x 60 curved frame structure with custom ends and weatherproof bonnet covered roof. Engineering of the structure and membrane attachment as well the floor slab was required prefabrication. The 24oz Ferrari membrane was custom to meet Tribal colors and the inner wall system was done in a heavy-duty blackout material acting as both privacy and an acoustic barrier. A custom logo and re-enforced bonnet hood finished the stage area.
