Central Michigan University
- Melinda Miller, Principal Engineer
- Quincey Smail, Senior Acoustical Consultant
ABD Engineering & Design worked closely with GMB Architecture + Engineering, and Central Michigan University staff on the Chippewa Champions Center. ABD’s complete acoustical consulting services included Room Acoustics, Noise Isolation, and Mechanical Noise Control.
Key challenges included the need to block the noise and impact transmission inherent in the weight room which would be adjacent to the high-profile Field Level Club. Conference rooms, divisible meeting rooms, lobby, open offices and private offices, along with a video editing suite all had unique use requirements with differing acoustical criteria and problems to solve. A wide, tiered, 125 seat auditorium rounded out the program. Beautiful wood finishes in the club, and branding throughout adds to this destination for Central Michigan University alumni and fans.
