Cultural & Entertainment

The very best entertainment and cultural venues provide a seamless blend of outstanding guest experiences and highly efficient “back-of-house” infrastructure. Theme park attractions, complex sports facilities, wild animal enclosures, theaters and playhouses – they all demand a perfectly balanced blend of the whimsical and the practical. Hoar excels at keeping a team focused on the goal: not just the right project on the right timeline at the right cost, but also a place that makes memories visitors cherish for a lifetime.
