Intelligent Star of New Mexico (06-18-02)
news  /  archive library  /  Intelligent Star of New Mexico

A new star is rising just fifteen miles north of Albuquerque at the Santa Ana Star Hotel Casino. The hotel’s facilities have been expanded and now include a major new Events Centre which is equipped with a new lighting grid fabricated and supplied by Total Structures, Inc.

Billy Tubb of APAC, an Albuquerque theatrical consultant, teamed up with Eric Kennedy, a local freelance lighting designer, to design a modern lighting rig which would incorporate both static and modern moving light fixtures for the events center.

The upstage and downstage trusses were specified as conventional pre rig truss, whereas the grid over center stage area comprises Intelligent Pre-Rig Truss (IPRT) with straight legs radiating from a central circular hub, to form the Zia, the state symbol of New Mexico.

The circular IPRT provides the support for a small projection screen for gobo images and the whole grid is raised and lowered on electric chain hoists to facilitate servicing and repositioning of the lighting fixtures.
