The Resonance team was retained to provide acoustical consulting at the San Mateo Medical Center Renovation project in San Mateo. The project consisted of the renovation of 25,000 square feet on the ground floor of the nursing tower, including the kitchen, morgue, coroner’s office, medical records, staff lockers, storage, and similar functions. In addition, a new administration building, which consisted of 70,000 square feet over three floors. The new administration building houses a kitchen, cafe/dining area, call center, security office, gift shop, education/conference center, administrative offices, and support spaces. Our acoustical consulting included sound isolation, room acoustics, MEP noise and vibration control, elevator, and other noise-generating building services.
Our team was also retained to provide construction noise and vibration control for the demolition of the existing health services building and the main hospital building project in San Mateo. The site is surrounded by single and multi-family residences and there was a concern that the demolition of the existing buildings and construction of the new hospital building would create noise and vibration impacts at the nearby residences.
