VSP was honored to be apart of Equinox’s brand new luxury fitness center of Bloomfield Hills, grand opening. Just three weeks ago Detroit Cultivated contacted VSP to provide lighting and audio services for Equinox’s grand opening celebration. Due to the venue being under construction with all the finishing touches being completed and the fitness center being opened the next day for business, there was a lot of activity going on from the time we arrived until we departed. Extra care was taken during the load-in, including floor protection, steel protection for rigging elements and extra caution around all the new glass.
We deployed our ISP Technologies line array sound system for the space which was a perfect fit. The pool area created an audio challenge since it was nearly 200′ away in a separate location within the fitness center. With VSP on-site and the Equinox audio team finishing up their fine-tuning, we worked together to insure guest were hearing the same audio signal the DJ was sending.
Lighting was accomplished using an Elation Professional rig due to their versitle fixtures. These fixtures were able to create the super soft color pallet our clients wanted to see so we could bathe the venue specifically to their requests. The pool lighting was accomplished using LED brick style fixtures with a diffusion lens and glare shield. The glare shield keep the light output from blinding guests as they visited the pool area while keeping the focus on the large letters and the space as a whole. The main event was a 3 minute and 30 second choreographed performance, during which time all the lighting was played back with a cue to cue light show for added energy and to showcase the Equinox brand.
Thank you to Detroit Cultivated for the continued trust and business over the years and to the Equinox team for having us apart of this very special grand opening celebration.
