2010: Polynesian Cultural Center – Gateway Restaurant, Laie, Hawaii. The existing 140 ft x 250 ft.  space was renovated into a semi-outdoor dining experience, complete with stage and audio system. Murals were printed on acoustically transparent fabric to absorb echoes and control reverberation. TA provided acoustical consulting services and HVAC noise control for the huge exhaust fans, required by the tropical environment, which provided a space quiet enough for musical performances.

2011: UNC Amberly Wellness Center, Cary, North Carolina. The wellness center provides service to members of the community.  Included in the center are fitness rooms, an indoor swimming pool, massage therapy rooms, indoor track, children’s play rooms, and classrooms.  TA provided the audiovisual system design through construction close out. The goal was to provide a low maintenance AV system for audio and video that required minimal staff.


2012:  Alfond Inn, Winter Park, Florida. The Inn at Rollins College is a Boutique Hotel consisting of 110 rooms supported by a lobby, ballroom, meeting rooms, board room, restaurant, library and conservatory. TA designed room acoustics for the ballroom and meeting spaces, sound isolation for the lobby, bar and restaurant, and review of the noise impact from the rooftop pool system.
