Acoustical Engineering Company for Colleges

Acoustics are an important part of designing many types of spaces including music halls, hospitals, malls and more. During Acousti Engineering Company of Florida’s 65+ years of service, we have been a part of many challenging and rewarding college and training center projects including Edison State College, Florida State University, Tidewater Community College, Manatee Technical Institute, and Meharry Medical College. The acoustics for a school or classroom can be very technical, but also stylish and intriguing.

Featured College Acoustic Project: Meharry Medical College

In this project, Acousti was tasked with enclosing the skylight area in the front of the building along the windows. Of the three options presented, one was a real wood linear system and the other two options were different Hunter Douglas metal ceiling systems; the customer ultimately selected a metal ceiling system for fire rating reasons.A complete submittal package was then sent to the architect for review, which included electronic shop drawings.
One of the biggest challenges for this project was gaining access to the ceilings due to both the height and limited maneuverability due to the monumental staircase built to access the third floor. Ultimately, Acousti along with six other contractors, decided to have a scaffold built over the staircase to achieve the utmost safety for the crews. This stationary scaffold allowed free access to the requisite height so that all scopes of work could be accomplished in both a safe and timely manner.
During this project Acousti Engineering Company of Florida was able to: 
  • Provide a safe work environment for our employees in an otherwise hazardous area.
