CSDA was retained to work with oWow to provide acoustical consulting to this new development consisting of 182 residential units. The project consists of two phases:
- Phase 1 will be the construction of 13,000 square feet of ground-floor and commercial space;
- Phase 2 will consist of the construction of 19-stories of residential units with 16 of them designated as affordable for low-income households. The development will have amenity space at the rooftop.
The type of construction for this development is Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT), which provides advantages such as lower costs, sustainability, and is faster to build compared to using other building materials.
CSDA’s services include acoustic measurements, construction site visits, design input on sound isolation, HVAC/mechanical noise/vibration reduction, room acoustics, and facade noise reduction design, from the environmental noise study phase through construction administration.
