Thorson Baker + Associates - Consulting Engineers


TBA’s expertise with entertainment facilities is diverse including theaters, amusements, and gaming facilities and renovations of professional sports arenas and stadiums. Significant projects include the design of two large casino gaming venues as well as major renovations to Progressive Field, home of the Cleveland Indians.

There are many challenges and unique requirements to be considered in the design of these types of facilities, from the large volume of people that occupy them at peak use as well as the amenities that serve them.

Our staff is experienced with the design requirements necessary to create a successful entertainment environment and the amenities associated with these unique projects. Whether it is seating, food and beverage areas within a stadium, or raised floors in the gaming area of a casino, understanding the fine details of an entertainment venue and how it is utilized by the public is the key to a successful design.
