Kirkegaard provided room acoustics and building system noise and vibration control design for a new 1,650-seat proscenium theatre, scene shop, dressing rooms, administration/faculty offices, and a 300-seat music/theatre hall located in the direct flight path of St. Louis' Lambert International Airport. The building envelope required a special acoustic design approach to prevent aircraft noise from interfering with events. Performance verification services included pre-and post-construction environmental noise measurements.
