The Problem

High noise levels on the 9th floor mezzanine of a busy high rise in Downtown Manhattan.

The Project Parameters:

A new build-out of the office spaces at West 50th Street required a significant amount of HVAC Chillers, Cooling Towers and stand-by power generation. Gensler was faced with the challenge of suppressing the high noise levels on a 9th floor mezzanine while also addressing the optics of the wall. Located in a canyon on all four sides, the aesthetics of the space were just as important as the noise control.

The Noise Barriers Solution:

Noise Barriers Representative Vibration Products, Matt Garner and architects from Gensler, NYC, designed the perfect QuietLine Noise Barrier Wall solution for high noise levels on the 9th floor mezzanine of a busy Mid-Town building.

The Results:

This challenging project was completed in a tight space with an even tighter deadline where the aesthetics were just as important as the acoustics.

The Bottom Line:

Noise Barriers’ beautiful and effective QuietLine Barrier Walls produced the perfect solution in this complicated space.
