Liverpool Philharmonic Hall has re-opened its doors to visitors having been closed since May for a £14m refurbishment, which included a complete revamp of the main concert hall and auditorium.
Multistage International Limited were asked to design, supply, install and commission 6 1tonne capacity lighting truss hoists and 5 lighting panel hoists. Due to the very tight lead time our installers worked throughout the nights to ensure that these were ready to use come opening night.
The remaining overhaul of the interior is due for completion Summer 2015.

Sadly today we said goodbye to our Senior Designer, Ivor Gammon. Ivor joined Multistage International Limited in January 2010 although had worked in television and theatre engineering since 1980. Ivor has moved to Cornwall with his partner Linda to run a pub, something which Ivor is very passionate about. We are lucky to be able to retain Ivor's knowledge and expertise in theatre engineering as he will continue to work for us on a consultancy basis. We thank Ivor very much for all his hard work and efforts over the years and wish him and Linda every success with their new venture. Cheers Ivor!!!
