Alex is able to utilize his musical performance background to conduct in-depth analysis and design of theaters and concert halls. Additionally, Alex has provided acoustical recommendations in the areas of noise ordinance compliance, environmental noise, and mechanical system noise and vibration control throughout his time at Metropolitan.
