The historically preserved Front Street consists of restored 18th century buildings that sustained significant damage from Hurricane Sandy. As part of the renovation, ownership installed highly efficient new mechanical systems.
Our office reviewed data submitted by manufacturers for proposed equipment to ensure the owner was being provided with selections that would meet NYC Noise Codes in nearby buildings. We then completed post-installation on-site measurements to evaluate if operational noise levels were compliant and to verify manufacturer’s projections. We confirmed additional noise control was not required. Our acoustical testing and measurements helped historic and modern architecture come together with NYC Noise Codes in one of New York City’s oldest neighborhoods.
