“I Didn’t Know You Did That”

If we just had a nickel for every time we hear “I didn’t know you did that!”…

Most recently, a very good client was sharing an elevator ride with us and mentioned he needed someone to do an audiovisual system design. He has used us frequently for acoustics, but never realized we also did AV!

So… For the record, Thorburn Associates Inc. is an Acoustical Consulting AND Audiovisual Engineering firm that provides a broad range of design and engineering services. These services tend to be split 50/50 between acoustics and technology design.

Acoustical Consulting services include:

– Room acoustics

– Sound isolation

– Mechanical noise and vibration control

– Environmental noise abatement
Technology system engineering services include:

– Audio systems

– Video systems

– Control systems

– Network system design – as it relates to the technology systems

– Lighting design for videoconference and broadcast facilities
For both acoustics and technology systems we provide:

– Project management / construction administration / acoustical testing

– Room modeling to predict how a room will sound once it is built.

– Expert testimony when noise from freeways, rapid transit, aircraft, plumbing, music, mechanical equipment, or adjacent tenants interferes with a client’s day-to-day use of a facility.
