I mentioned a couple weeks ago that as part of our relocation to Downtown Orlando, the facility owner agreed to pay for most of the build out of a state of the art audio facility for IDEAS. Today, construction officially began. Around 9am the contractors arrived and demolition of the stage began. There wasn’t a lot of work done today but what was done was significant to us. Miscellaneous things in the ceiling were removed. All the walls were drawn out on the ground so we could clearly see where the “hard walls” and “soft walls” will be. Where the one wall currently is will be punched out to be the entrance to the mix room, the door is outlined with lines and measurements. Inside the current closet that will be closed off from the stage and will go out to the back hallway has the same outline and measurements. Like I said, there wasn’t a ton of work done but any work signifies construction has begun. Pictures from the progress from today have been posted on our new home website www.ideasorlando.com/ideasnewhome then click on the pictures & blog tab. With any luck, within months construction will be done and we’ll have an awesome post audio mix room and a nice insert stage.
