Impacted by aircraft noise from nearby San Francisco International Airport, acoustical treatments were made to more than 6,600 single- and multi-family homes, three churches, one school and a convent to reduce interior noise levels. Program management, design, community outreach and construction administration services were provided. Instrumental to the program’s success was the development and implementation of a Community Outreach Program and Showcase Home to stimulate homeowner participation in the program. Completed in accordance with a client-driven accelerated schedule, approximately 1,400 homes were acoustically treated each year over a three-year period.
