To update the 5e Salle, Trizart recommended changes to the scenography and a complete overhaul of the audiovisual infrastructure.

The biggest transformations were the addition of a staircase towards the trampoline, the replacement of half of the trampoline by a modular system and the other half by technical catwalks, the reconfiguration of the control rooms with a new windowed section, the complete replacement of the seating systems (fixed and removable) and the reconfiguration of the mechanical distribution to make working on the trampoline easy and safe.

In terms of equipment, Trizart was responsible for designing the seating system, the stage masking system on rails, updating the PA and video control systems, the audiovisual and lighting infrastructure and network, and integrating the new sound system.
