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.

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.
