20 Monroe - exterior

Gilmore Group, House of Blues, and Live Nation Clubs and Theaters


Grand Rapids, Michigan


ABD Engineering & Design worked directly with the Gilmore Group, in Partnership with House of Blues and Live Nation Clubs and Theaters to provide extensive acoustical consulting for this premiere live performance venue in the heart of the city.

Of particular concern was managing exterior noise levels, due to the adjacent hotel, high-end condominiums, and other residential properties. ABD began with a noise study to predict the noise propagation, and engineered recommendations for the building envelope to minimize the impact of the new facility. (see sound map images below)
