Generally you would go to a rental house to get the appropriate projector. Projection rentals often allow for setup and breakdown with full screen rentals as necessary.

Thank you-I should have said "turn-key". I'm looking to for a company that can walk in and manage the projction end things soup to nuts. They want to "wrap" projections around buildings so fairly complicated I imagine because images have to be broken up over multiple projectors.

I've never heard of a turn-key company for this type of work. You may want to talk to a video house that does video work, and they will have to put together all the video shots across the screens, then you will still need the projection rentals. The projectors are likely to be $70,000+ units, so they will have specialists who can set things up and break them down, but source material is going to have to come from a video production house, and typically the rigging and such associated with the projectors is completely separate from the video production house.

I would perhaps be looking at a theater company that is used to setup and break down of that type of major setups, but you will definitely need to call some places and ask, because this really isn't a turn-key type of request.
