Orchestra shell assembly and installation timelapse

This time-lapse highlights the complex assembly and installation of the Southam Hall orchestra shell. It is, without a doubt, the shining star of the National Arts Centre’s Production Renewal Project.

Designed by Diamond Schmitt Architects, Fisher Dachs Associates, Threshhold Acoustics and Engineering Harmonics, and manufactured by Wenger & JR Clancy, the orchestra shell took more than 18 months to design and manufacture. Installation and assembly of the shell took three months and was completed by the NAC’s Production team in consultation with Wenger & JR Clancy.
