The scope of this project includes digital audio systems, room acoustics, interior sound isolation, and HVAC noise control design services for the South Block Renovations at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. The Kennedy Center, America’s living memorial to President John F. Kennedy and the nation’s busiest arts facility, produces and presents a variety of theater and musicals, dance and ballet, orchestral, chamber, jazz, popular, world and folk music and multi-media performances. The South Block Renovations has several components including the redesign of all support spaces for the Main Concert Hall (the largest venue at the Kennedy Center). This includes all dressing rooms, rehearsal rooms, practice rooms, instrument storage rooms, locker rooms, office spaces, etc. As part of this task, the piano storage area will be relocated for grand pianos used in the Main Concert Hall; this new room will require specialized temperature and humidity control to address the sensitivities of these instruments. Additionally, we have been asked to identify acoustical deficiencies and MEP system deficiencies within the Main Concert Hall and propose design solutions.
