CSDA worked with the design team to provide acoustical consulting for a confidential client’s advanced technologies office space in Mountain View, CA. We provided analysis of noise and vibration from machinery to adjacent offices, along with providing design input on sound isolation, room acoustics and HVAC noise/vibration reduction.


CSDA is providing acoustical consulting services for the adaptive reuse of 6 buildings for confidential tech client located in Mountain View, CA. The office buildings contain offices, meeting rooms, phone rooms, research and development spaces, and industrial spaces. We are providing recommendations for sound insulation, room acoustics, and HVAC noise. Additional inputs will be provided for structure borne noise and vibration transmission from the research and development spaces.


CSDA is providing full acoustical design services including exterior noise intrusion analysis, interior sound isolation, and MEP noise and vibration control for this project. This site is located in the flight path of the Los Angeles International Airport, therefore aircraft noise intrusion is a significant concern. This project is converting an existing commercial office building to a 400-key dual branded Hyatt House select service hotel.


CSDA provided acoustical consulting services to Gensler for the tenant improvement project for Biomarin. A primary focus of our consulting was the central atrium and the surrounding office spaces; we analyzed reverberation, speech intelligibility and background noise levels inside of the spaces. We also provided consulting for sound isolation, HVAC noise and provided sound masking analysis/commissioning services.


CSDA was retained to provide acoustical consulting at the San Mateo Medical Center Renovation project in San Mateo. The project consists of the renovation of 25,000 square feet of 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 is planned, which will consist of 70,000 square feet over three floors. The new administration building will house a kitchen, cafe/dining area, call center, security office, gift shop, education/conference center, administrative offices, and support spaces. Our acoustical consulting includes sound isolation, room acoustics, MEP noise and vibration control, elevator and other noise-generating building services.

CSDA 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 is a concern that the demolition of the existing buildings and construction of the new hospital building will create noise and vibration impacts at the nearby residences.
