Acoustics By Design, Inc. and Daly-Standlee & Associates, Inc., two leading independent acoustical consulting firms, announced the merger of their businesses, effective April 1, 2016. Acoustics By Design, headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan and Daly-Standlee & Associates in Portland, Oregon, provide a full range of acoustical engineering and consulting, and AV design services to architects, engineers, facilities directors, municipalities, industrial clients and building owners.
The combination of Acoustics By Design and Daly-Standlee & Associates professionals provides a deeper portfolio of services and expertise for clients. Both offices offer a broad range of acoustical engineering and AV design services. These include architectural acoustics, environmental, and industrial noise and vibration, audio, video, theatrical lighting, digital signage, conference technology, and other technical systems expertise.
Kenric Van Wyk, President of Acoustics By Design said, “We’re excited to expand our West Coast presence. While we’ve had a small service office in the Portland area, the merger and addition of Daly-Standlee strengthens our firm both geographically and from the position of offering a broader, deeper bench of specialization and expertise, nationally.”
Kerrie G. Standlee, President of Daly-Standlee & Associates, says, “The merger with Acoustics By Design provides a nice complement of services for our clients. We will be maintaining our strong presence in environmental noise work and vibration measurement and control work and enhancing the architectural acoustic services provided by the firm by adding the audio, video, and lighting expertise and architectural acoustic expertise coming from the staff at Acoustic By Design. Long-standing Daly-Standlee clients, as well as future clients, will see a firm with much broader capability and expertise.”
Both firms have long histories in the acoustical consulting industry with Acoustics By Design, Inc. founded in 1962 and Daly-Standlee & Associates, Inc. opening in 1988 as an outgrowth of Daly Engineering, founded in 1969. Each firm is a member of the National Council of Acoustical Consultants and Van Wyk currently serves as President for the organization, while Standlee serves as the Council’s Immediate Past-President.
