Cornerstone is a Christian University with multiple chapel services each week. A very important design element for the university was the concept of worshipping in the round to enhance community and intimacy for this 1500 seat soaring worship space. ABD Engineering and Design was hired to design the acoustics, mechanical noise control, audio, video, and specialty lighting for this chapel in the round where no student will be more than 50’ from the stage. Compact line arrays were chosen to cover the student body with dynamic sound, while four large format rear projection video screens provide a visual connection to the presentation content. The stage and choir areas are lit with LED light fixtures to provide maximum exibility and long term stewardship.
