Venice Island Wins Award

Venice Island Performing Arts and Recreation Center was awarded the Environmental Project of the Year by the Construction Management Association of America’s Mid-Atlantic chapter.

The award recognizes the environmental aspects of the project and Philadelphia Water’s commitment to green storm water management initiatives.

Located in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia between the Schuylkill River and Manayunk Canal, this ambitious project – 10 years in the making – is a reconstructed public space with a theater, outdoor amphitheater, playground, basketball courts and a spray park.

Metropolitan Acoustics provided the acoustical and audio visual consultation on the new performing arts theater.  Working with the architects, Buell Kratzer Powell, we designed acoustical treatments for the interior finishes; provided recommendations for partition construction to minimize sound transmission between the auditorium/stage and adjacent areas; and worked with the mechanical engineers to design recommendations for noise and vibration attenuation measures of the HVAC systems.  Additionally, we designed a performance sound system for all uses of the auditorium.
