Intelligent Lighting, Inc., is the exclusive in-house rigging contractor for The Waldorf Astoria. Their primary obligation is to ensure that all rigging is carried out in a safe and efficient manner. They must approve your rigging design to ensure that it is efficient and that it does not exceed approved loads. There are a total of six (6) points available in the Grand Ballroom. They are responsible to install and dismantle all your equipment needs that require rigging, and they are also responsible to the Hotel to ensure that they respect the structural limitations of the meeting rooms as established by their engineers and to safeguard all the Hotel equipment and installations.
All signs, banners and decorations that are being attached to the points must be hung by Intelligent Lighting.
Intelligent Lighting is available to conduct site surveys, and will require, 14 days prior to load-in, a plot plan showing all lighting, audio, video, and scenic equipment that requires rigging. Your drawings can be faxed or e-mailed to them in DWG, DWF, or EPS format.
Bringing in outside lifts must meet all codes and regulations of NYC and NY State, as well as Hotel rules and regulations. Any damaged caused by outside units from, but not limited to hydraulic leaks, wheel marks and/or any other mechanical issues will be the sole responsibility and cost of said production and/or outside Audio Visual Company.
Please note that ONLY in the Grand Ballroom, Presentation Services Audio Visual (PSAV) is the exclusive in-house rigging contractor, using the rigging points installed and owned by PSAV. When rigging in other locations in the ballroom or other meeting rooms, the services of Intelligent Lighting can also be availed of.
