Celebrating our 34th year, F & D Scene Changes Ltd. has been internationally celebrated for our talent in transforming our clients’ ideas into reality. Our projects range from scenery for theatre, television and film to theme park elements, museum exhibits, and trade show and retail displays. We have fabricated and installed our products throughout North America and internationally for various clients such as Cirque du Soleil (Montreal, Macau, Las Vegas and Los Angeles), Universal Studios California, Disney (Orlando, California, Tokyo and Hong Kong), Broadway, The Centre Theatre Group in Los Angeles, The Glenbow Museum, Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park, CrossIron Mills Mall in Balzac, AB and many venues throughout Canada and the United States.
Our success comes through working closely with our clients. Involvement can begin from the conceptual stage through to installation. With each phase we offer a range of services and staff to ensure distinct material advantages and superior conceptual realization while meeting the financial, technical, and scheduling realities of a project.
F & D people have unequalled enthusiasm for the work that we do. Our determined “can do” attitude ensures that we excel at finding ways to meet the requests of our clients. We operate with a base staff of approximately 100 employees and we expand our staff as necessity dictates. The shop is home to multiple disciplines running the gamut of metal fabrication, carpentry, fiberglass, an enormous scenic drop shop, a sewing and soft goods area, an industrial and scenic paint booth and our design/drafting department. Projects of varying intricacy are well within our scope of expertise because of our collaborative team of creative artists (versed in textures and a myriad of sculptural materials), technical experts (in the fields of automation, electrical and rigging), and highly skilled trades people. F & D is proud to operate under the jurisdiction of the IATSE Union, local 212.
We are located in a 40,000 square foot facility on the edge of downtown Calgary, Alberta. The Shop has a rafter height of 33 feet and we are fully equipped with overhead cranes to allow for efficient handling of materials. These cranes are also used to aid in the setting up,rigging, and presentation of most projects.
F & D is a company that utilizes the best of creativity and ingenuity to generate solutions that exceed our customers’ expectations. Our client list sparkles with a great variety of projects and our experience speaks best to our abilities.
