ABD Engineering and Design provided acoustical engineering and AV Design for the Mulder Chapel at Western Theological Seminary. Our Professional Engineers consulted on Mechanical Noise Control, and Room Acoustics, and designed Audio, Video, and Specialty Lighting systems to integrate with the native acoustical environment. ABD specified a variety of aesthetically pleasing and highly functional acoustic treatments.

The space was designed to support choir, pipe organ, piano, hand-bell ensemble, classical ensemble (e.g., strings, horns, woodwinds), and modern band (e.g., guitar, drums) music. Sound is typically both amplified and un-amplified during services. ABD worked with Elevate Studio architects to ensure the acoustical and AV features complimented the architectural design, especially in the beautifully appointed chancel.
