W.A. Schmidt Provides Platforms for National Conventions

W.A. Schmidt Inc., a manufacturer of structural mezzanines, will provide major mezzanine installations this summer for the Republican National Convention (RNC) in New York City and the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Boston.

Schmidt’s project team proposed innovative designs, which led to the award of both projects. In the case of the RNC at Madison Square Garden, Schmidt’s 30,000-square-foot mezzanine expands the existing floor space over the ice rink by 30percent; additional smaller platforms that protrude through the main mezzanine provide camera staging and are isolated by a special vibration buffer.

For the DNC at the Fleet Center, Schmidt’s 49,000-square-foot design, which will be used in a temporary outdoor structure, is engineered to be installed and dismantled quickly, and will be used again in different modular configurations at other locations.

W.A. Schmidt designs and custom-engineers high-quality wide-span and modular mezzanines plus a variety of other material handling products. Schmidt has completed more than 22,000 material handling equipment installations throughout North America and overseas.
