Sony’s Stage 14 renovation project involved the conversion of a 17,000 square foot, 1920s-era building into a state-of-the-art sound stage. Soundproof perimeter walls were constructed, along with new electrical and mechanical systems, new elephant doors, a waterproof pit for underwater filming and structural upgrades to support a glu-lam beam lighting grid. Phil Okerlund was able to participate early in the process, acting in Business Development, Pre Construction and Preconstruction Manager roles.
