The J. David Gladstone Institutes, San Francisco, CA

Architect: NBBJ, San Francisco, CA

The 68,000 square foot J. David Gladstone Institutes comprise the first private biomedical research facility built at Mission Bay. Our firm provided both acoustical and audiovisual design services. The latter focused on a facility-wide CATV DDS system. Our audiovisual consultants also consulted on a 150-seat lecture room, seminar rooms, and a divisible conference space. Our acoustical consultants addressed the room acoustics in the lecture room, lobby, and animal care facility. Additionally, they addressed sound isolation for the lecture room, offices, and other sensitive spaces. Finally, mechanical and plumbing system noise reduction measures were recommended.
