The A.D. Players, a Houston-based Christian theater company, expect to open the Jeannette & L.M. George Theater at 5420 Westheimer Road in February. The nearly 35,000 sq. ft. theater cost around $18 million to build, dwarfing the company’s previous theater inside the Loop.
Tolunay-Wong Engineers, Inc. (TWE) is proud to have been a part of the newly constructed A.D. Players Theater Complex. This new construction consisted of a two-story, 32,760 sq. ft. performing arts venue with an eight-foot orchestra pit and 80-foot-high fly loft rising above the stage, along with an attached, four-story, 128,000 sq. ft. open parking garage. TWE provided geotechnical studies and construction materials testing services, which included observing proof-roll operations on subgrade; field density/moisture testing on backfill, fill, and stabilized subgrade; foundation-installation observation on drilled piers; monitoring and testing of concrete materials; structural steel inspection of welded and bolted connections; and related laboratory testing.
