Completed

ABD Engineering & Design worked with Schmidt Architects on complete acoustical consulting and audiovisual design for this auditorium and support spaces renovation project.

Rotating an existing auditorium 90 degrees to provide a wider approach to the stage comes with a unique set of challenges. Add to that a fixed ceiling height requiring creative solutions to the performance space. Back of house and lobby audio and video systems were added to allow patrons and backstage personnel alike to see and hear stage activities. The acoustical materials and audiovisual systems blended seamlessly into the modern and durable design.
