Postma Center for Worship and Education

Acoustics By Design was contracted by Integrated Architecture to develop an audio-visual design and architectural acoustics plan for Pine Rest’s, LEED Certified, Postma Center. Since Pine Rest frequently treats mentally ill patients, great care was taken to make sure that the facility was free from mechanical noise, excess reverberation, and crosstalk between rooms. Our precision design work helped to increase patient satisfaction and confidentiality. In addition we provided specifications for audio-visual features that enhanced the communication capabilities of the staff. A cutting-edge video conferencing system was installed to broadcast live events and lectures over the internet to locations across Michigan and in Iowa. The technical system was integrated for variable-use applications, from professional communication to religious worship services.
