Acoustical Lagging Noise Levels

University of Minnesota recently went with challenging project called for creating an aesthetically and acoustically superior performance space while preserving the three-story lobby, proscenium pipe-and-ductarch and other historic elements of the theater. In order to accomplish this daunting task the architect reached out to All Noise Control.

The layout of the main performance space was completely changed and acoustically friendly building materials were installed.ANC-AB-10 LAG/QFA-3 material was used to wrap the ducts to reduce noise emitted from the heating ventilation and air conditioning system.

The iconic Northrup Auditorium now has equally beautiful acoustics to match the spectacular renovation and what had once been a performer’s nightmare has been transformed into a space that carries even the most delicate of sounds throughout.
