  • Description:
    • PROJECT SIZE
      61,766 SF
      
      The first new ground-up soundstages on the NBCUniversal lot in over 50 years, Area 51 houses two 18,000 sf soundstages and an adjacent three-story production building, approximately 9,000 sf. MATT took the sound stages from foundation-only permit to production move-in within seven months, and the support building to substantial completion within eight months. Conception to completion (design, permitting, move-out of existing tenants, demolition, construction and owner move-in) of the entire project was less than 15 months.
      
      The three-floor production facility includes green rooms and dressing rooms on the ground floor and meeting rooms and office space on the second and third floors. Due to the soil conditions, the foundation was built on 323 torque-down piles with a 500 psf capacity slab. The sound stages, each with an NC 25 sound rating, were built as a tilt-up concrete structure with CMU demising. The stages are 35-foot clear height to the bottom of the catwalk and lighting grid. 14 wooden bow trusses support the grid. MATT self-performed the rough carpentry, including building and erecting each of the 35,000-pound trusses and hoisting them into place by crane. The stages also house four exterior electronically controlled 20′ x 20′ elephant doors.
