Roundtable Discussion: Broadcast Studio Project for FOX 5 DC
How does a broadcast studio project come together? It takes a lot of collaboration and communication between several experts. Studio Insights brought together a panel of key contributors to explain how they worked together to create the new Fox 5 DC Studios. Peter Provost, Director of Design & President of Provost Studio; Ben Jacobson, Project Manager at Mystic Scenic Studios; Tony Siniscalco, Systems Designer/Project Manager, The Lighting Design Group; and Jim Landy, Founder, AV Design Services, LLC, discussed the challenges, opportunities, and lessons from working together on such an ambitious project.
“I like to think of us as the orchestrator of it all in terms of bringing the right people on for the right jobs, Provost said.“My role as the director of design for Provost Studio is responsible for the quality and trajectory of the design, and then managing client expectations, and getting the right team together for the project.” And for this job, Provost found that team in Mystic Scenic Studios, The Lighting Design Group, and AV Design Services, LLC.
Siniscalco credited his prior training in theatrical and venue lighting for understanding how not all lighting situations and environments are the same and the approaches and considerations needed when building a studio environment. “I’m constantly looking at not just what the lighting infra structure is, but what’s the HVAC infrastructure. Where are the sprinkler pipes? How is the conduit run? We’re constantly looking at things in BIN models and CAD drawings, trying to make sure everything is lined up the way it ought to be.”
From the studio design perspective, Jacob explained the best-laid plans don’t always workout, and creative solutions are needed as construction issues present themselves. None of this happens without collaboration from all the various partners working together to make sure their part of the project fits in with the others.
