Resonance Acoustics conducted an environmental noise study for the planned construction of a new, three story commercial building in downtown San Mateo. We measured and compared existing environmental noise levels to acoustical criteria in the State Building Code and the City of San Mateo’s General Plan. Resonance’s report included noise reduction measures, such as sound-rated windows and doors, for the mixed-use retail and office space.
Acousticians reviewed the mechanical drawings and provided multiple options to reconfigure or modify the mechanical equipment to meet the noise criteria in the City of San Mateo’s Municipal Code. In addition, Resonance provided HVAC noise/vibration reduction recommendations for the office spaces.
