Marshall/KMK serves as consultant in architectural acoustics to architects, engineers and owners under-taking new construction and renovation projects. The firm’s expertise relates to matters of scale, sitting and adjacencies; construction systems and methods; materials and finishes; performance standards; and quality checkpoints. Working directly with the design team, we present our recommendations in conferences, letter-reports and drawings. In unusual projects, computer modeling and auralization studies can be used to assist in the analysis of acoustic behavior of varying design options.
Our expertise in the field of acoustics is an important complement to our capabilities with regard to sound system design. The firm’s background is founded in the performing arts with experience extending through education, corporate, entertainment and a wide variety of public gathering spaces. Intelligibility, fidelity and coverage, coupled with robust infrastructure and strong consideration for both the technical and non-technical user are the backbone of our design success.
Our extensive experience with system designs for performing arts facilities paved our way to designing high end presentation facilities for educational, corporate and entertainment facilities. From large screen projection and surround sound systems for multi-use concert halls to technology rich boardrooms, conference room and training facilities, Marshall-KMK routinely provides coordinated technology design services bridging the gap between the construction trades and the technology demands of the IT and Media Service providers for corporate, educational and entertainment clients.
