BBC Friday Night is Music Night

500 Capacity choir riser at London’s Troxy

BBC Friday Night is Music Night - LiteDeck Choir Riser

The Proposal

To create a six tier choir riser accommodating 480 members Some Voices Choir for BBC Friday Night is Music Night’s live broadcast from Troxy.  The riser had to take up the minimum amount of floor space to allow for the BBC Concert Orchestra on the main floor of the venue.  Additionally to create depth and stereo image the riser had to feature two return “wings”, and elevate the choir above the orchestra.

BBC Friday Night Is Music Night - Prolyte LiteDeck Choir Riser Bracing

The Outcome

Using accurate 3d CAD plans of the venue, we devised created a totally unique structure, advised on the appropriate egress requirements, performed load calculations, both for the stage deck system and for the venue floor.  Using Prolyte LiteDeck and a team of 8 stage builders, the structure was installed in under 8 hours.  ZEROdB Live supplied “babysitters” to monitor the structure during use.
