The goal of the new Emory University Student Campus Life Center in Atlanta, GA completed in April 2019 is to be welcoming to all students, providing inspiring dining, fostering collaboration, embracing large events and meetings, providing a u201cuniquely Emoryu201d image and character. The previous dining hall that was demolished for this new building was extremely reverberant and was excessively loud. It was critical the dining environment in the new space corrected this acoustic issue. Dividable multipurpose spaces was a key part of the project to serve large events that could support an entire undergraduate class and serve as graduation if weather becomes an issue but also be flexible in size to support University as well as community events. Kirkegaard completed room acoustics, sound isolation and noise control design for the project.
