Before looking ahead to the years to come (stay tuned for a future blog post on Acentech’s exciting future), I thought I’d reflect on how grateful…
Unique Noise Control Standards Developed for Mixed-Use Project
An acoustics consulting firm, Acentech, developed project-specific noise control guidelines for Assembly Row—a new mixed-use waterfront development near Boston.
Located on a 18-ha (45-acre) previously underdeveloped site on the Mystic River in Somerville, Massachusetts, Assembly Row’s master plan was conceived and coordinated by developer Federal Realty Investment Trust (FRT). It retained Acentech early in the project to address the complex issue of noise control as it related to the mix of uses within four blocks. The acoustic design addressed noise and acoustic issues in buildings and tenant spaces.
