Carlsbad-By-The-Sea, Carlsbad, CA

Architect: Steinberg Architects, San Jose, CA

Originally a famous seaside resort dating back to the 1880's, Carlsbad-By-The-Sea now serves as a 160-unit retirement and skilled nursing facility. Charles M. Salter Associates conducted environmental noise measurements to determine the level of noise reduction that would be required of the window assemblies. Sound isolation between units was addressed with appropriate walls and floor-ceiling assemblies. We also recommended measures to mitigate the propagation of rooftop ventilation noise to adjacent properties.
