Personnel

ABD Engineering and Design was retained to offer consulting services for architectural acoustics in the IMAX Theatres, located inside Celebration Cinema of Grand Rapids and Lansing, Michigan. Our design services included specifications for proper reverberation time, mechanical noise control, and interior and exterior noise isolation. The project called for exceptional sound quality to meet the high expectations of an IMAX movie experience.

Even before construction began, our professional engineers used 3D modeling to accurately simulate the room’s acoustical attributes. Comprehensive recommendations were made to cover every aspect of acoustical design. Our final report gave Celebration Cinema the information necessary to provide an exceptional IMAX experience for all their movie guests.
