David H. Koch Theater

David H. Koch Theater, formerly known as the New York State Theater recently underwent renovations. Improvements included expanding the existing orchestra pit, installing a motorized lift system to raise and lower the orchestra pit in two separate sections, complete replacement of the existing theatrical dimming system, adding a video production center for videotaping performances and distribution video feeds throughout the theater, providing the backbone for a titling system which consists of small monitors located on the backs of each seat to provide sub-titles and other information to patrons of the opera and ballet, providing a motorized system for the light ladders, fire curtain and other stage rigging systems, expanding the follow spot room, and renovating the projection booth and control booth.

Pennoni completed MEP engineering design and provided construction administration services associated with the renovations to this world-renowned performing arts facility.
