ABD Engineering & Design worked with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) on the expansion of the Cleveland Clinic Florida campus. The project included significant expansion of the Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit (EDICU), and the addition of a 74 bed (expandable to 100) four story patient tower.

Beginning with a noise study and recommendations for the building exterior. ABD’s services included Cleveland Clinic’s own acoustical criteria. Per Florida code, we also followed the six acoustic sections of FGI 2014: site exterior noise, acoustic surfaces, room noise levels, performance of interior wall and floor/ceiling constructions (noise isolation), speech privacy, and building vibration. Additionally, the facility is designed to meet the LEED Silver standard.

During construction, ABD also performed acoustical testing of four mock-up patient rooms: (Emergency Department treatment, observation, ICU, and ECU). These tests verified compliance with our recommendations to meet the various acoustical criteria.
