Performing Arts Center

ABD Engineering and Design was selected by GMB Architects + Engineers to design comprehensive acoustical engineering and audio-visual systems for the new Performing Arts Center at Plainwell High School. The two-tier, 750-seat auditorium boasts a sunken orchestra pit, acoustical reflector clouds, scene shop, loading gallery, dressing rooms, and an acoustically optimized lobby with custom display cases for student artwork.

Our engineers designed acoustical improvements that enhanced the space for sound including room acoustics, noise isolation, and HVAC noise control in the auditorium and lobby. In addition, our Audio-Video Engineers developed technical systems customized to compliment the acoustical enhancements.

The result is a pristine auditorium suited to meet the school district’s needs for years to come. The Performing Arts Center opened to rave reviews from students, teachers, and the community.
