Sophia L. and Peter Martin Wege Conference Center
ABD Engineering & Design was hired by the Diocese of Grand Rapids to offer independent audio-visual design services for their, LEED Certified, Cathedral Square facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Our consultants designed professional audio, video, and control systems for the large conference area, pre-function area, meeting rooms, conference rooms, and support spaces. We used a computer program called EASE to model the facility in 3D and predict its aural response. This enabled us to make precision recommendations for speaker placement and technical system integration. We also developed a complete video system design that included projector systems, control systems, switching, and signal processors. Our design enhanced the communication abilities of the Diocese, making it relevant for years to come.
