Describe your project, what makes it unusual, and/or any outstanding characteristics.
Custom home theatre for a Net Zero residence. We worked together with the Audio Video Engineering Team that designs and installs the equipment for Cineplex Movie Theatres. We built and supplied the following: - Acoustic sound panel absorbers behind the screen wrapped in fleece - sound bouncing columns on the side walls, wrapped in cherry veneer - Acoustic sound absorbing, ceiling "sound clouds" made from cherry veneer with insulated backs . These sound clouds help dampen any extra echoes and reduce the number of waves rebounding throughout a space. - Cherry finish border surrounding projector
List any items that were outsourced.
Everything was done in house. This project was very hard to install. Every sound panel had to be installed at a specific angle (using a digital angle measurer) in order to achieve proper bouncing of acoustic sound waves.
