We provided acoustical review for two projects at Riverdale Country School: the Zambetti athletic center building renovation and new natatorium. The Zambetti building includes a full-sized gymnasium and features three courts, one which is regulation-sized. The natatorium is located in a new building.

The Zambetti building renovation converted the existing pool at the lower level into a practice gym and renovate the competition gym into a multifunction space. Our recommendations included adding acoustic and Lapendary baffles to the gym, locker rooms, and lobby as well as partition constructions in the locker rooms.

Acoustic issues related to the new natatorium included overall buildup of noise within the pool and spectator areas, sound transmission to future multi-purpose rooms, and sound transmission from the building to nearby residential buildings. Our recommendations included acoustic decking, wall treatments, and review of mechanical equipment noise for compliance with NYC Noise Code.
