Room acoustics, mechanical systems, and audio systems design for this new 2000-seat multi-use concert hall. The project also incorporates a separate 450-seat chamber music hall that serves as an orchestra rehearsal space, multi-purpose lobby, and renovation of Omaha's Orpheum Theatre, a 1928-vintage vaudeville house. The Orpheum renovation, completed in 2002, included the redesign of both house and stage HVAC systems.
