This renovation focuses on transforming nearly 80-year-old, neoclassical spaces into functional rehearsal, performance and support spaces as well as offices for use by the San Francisco Opera. Kirkegaard design services will encompass room acoustics and sound isolation design as well as mechanical noise and vibration control consulting services.

In addition to isolating sound-critical portions from each other, efforts to protect some critical spaces from rooftop mechanical equipment as well as airborne environmental noise will be performed.

Kirkegaard also will provide AV systems consulting services for the project, including audio/video recording and projection/playback in the performance, rehearsal, and lobby spaces.
