Building Project Choreography

One definition of choreography is “the art of composing dances by planning and arranging the movements, steps, and patterns of the dancers.” In the same way, a successful church design & construction project involving AVL is also choreography. The project:
  • is an art form
  • is a composition
  • involves planning and arranging
  • is about movement, steps, and patterns
A working illustration of design-construction-AVL choreography can be found on Alliance Bible Fellowship’s new worship center project: JH Batten Design Builders, Livingstones Architecture, and Signature Sight and Sound have joined together to work with Alliance’s tech team from the very beginning. Early in the planning stages, a working partnership was launched. As the project moved from schematic design to final construction documents, all the partners kept up a running dialog to make sure what the church wanted could be done, on time and in budget.

This panel discussion is taking place today at WFX in Ballroom B, from 1-2:30 PM. It will illustrate the choreography involved in a successful church project with extensive AVL applications. In just the same way dancers must plan, rehearse, and perform a choreographed dance number, a church AVL project involves choreography all throughout the project.

How to Choreograph a Great Building Project
  • Have a vision
  • Pick the music before you start making up the dance
  • Don't dance to the words of the song
  • Count!
  • Don't depend on tricks
