Resonance Acoustics worked with the design team to provide acoustical consulting services for the SLAC Building 52 Accelerator Control Room and the Building 40 Research Support offices. SLAC is operated on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy by Stanford University.
For the SLAC Building 52 Accelerator Control Room, the key goals of the project were to verify that acoustical criteria contained in the existing Conceptual Design Report are being met and to summarize the project’s acoustical requirements. Resonance also reviewed the Design Development drawings and provided recommendations to meet the acoustical criteria. In addition, we performed HVAC and reverberation time calculations.
The Building 40 offices consist of open plan, private offices, and conference rooms. We provided sound isolation recommendations, plumbing noise reduction guidelines, and HVAC noise analysis.
