Campus Noise Study
- Melinda Miller, Principal Engineer
ABD Engineering & Design worked with Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, to complete an outdoor environmental noise study, evaluating portable speaker locations at Mulligan Field, Foley Lawn and the Quad on the Gonzaga University campus.
The purpose of the study was to provide locations, orientations, and maximum allowable sound pressure levels for the speakers to maintain compliance with the Spokane Municipal Code. This was accomplished using sophisticated software for acoustical modeling of outdoor spaces. ABD used the modeling noise prediction and analysis of the potential impact on the surrounding community.
