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 at the San Mateo Medical Center demolition of 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 was 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.
