From anywhere in the USA, Spire AVL can provide a range of theater design and consulting services for performance venues of any size. Our theater consultants possess a strong background in the performing arts as well as vast architectural and technical knowledge that allows them to solve the challenges associated with designing comprehensive audio, video, lighting and rigging systems.

Working in collaboration with architects, general contractors, engineers and other tradespeople, we provide full-service support for projects of any size.

Our Specialties

Our theater consulting services are tailored to meet the needs of each individual client. We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. Instead, through an extended consultation process, we’ll work with you to put together a custom-designed system that meets your requirements. This may include any combination of:

  • Audio and acoustic paneling
  • Video systems
  • Theatrical and house lighting
  • Curtains and rigging
  • Theater communication systems
  • Data/IT setups
  • Seating layout and sightlines
  • Stage and venue layout
  • Master planning


And more. Previous clients have included performing arts centers in a range of sizes and specializations. Let us work with you to determine the best combination of products and services necessary to bring the creative vision of your performers to life.

Specialized Expertise for Performance Venues

Performance venues have highly specialized audio and visual requirements. Compromising on acoustics, sound or video quality, or lighting or rigging, simply isn’t an option. Investing in the best possible system for your budget is the best way to keep patrons happy and attract top acts to your venue. As well, sophisticated integrated systems make it easy for your crew to deliver complex programming and reduces the risk of technical problems marring an otherwise flawless performance.

Our theater consulting services take these and other essential concerns into consideration, balancing them with a big-picture look at your financials and your long-term plans. We believe there is no one best system — only the best system for you. Unlike other AVL design companies, all that we do is customized to meet your specific needs.

We’ll provide you with detailed feasibility studies backed by 3D rendering and CAD designs, and help you set an appropriate budget that offers the best value possible. Whether we’re upgrading an existing system or building something new from scratch, our well-rounded expertise in architecture, engineering and design makes us the best partner for any project.

Service and Support

Our role as a full-service theater consultant doesn’t end once your equipment is installed. We’ll be available to provide on-site support as necessary to help you make the best use of your new system. This includes both training your crew and providing troubleshooting and support down the line.
