Commentaar

“We specify textile duct liner all the time for acoustically sensitive projects, and we’ve been very happy with the ToughGard 2 Textile Duct Liner,” says Bill Whitman, Senior Vice President of W.L. Cassell & Associates. “It has better acoustic control than other duct liners we’ve come across.” “We’re using a low-velocity displacement HVAC system under the seats, and we’re feeding the air into the massive concrete plenums instead of ducts,” Whitman says. “So, we’re also insulating the plenums with the ToughGard 2 Duct Liner for acoustic control.” “ToughGard 2 is designed to meet the tough standards of the most discerning mechanical engineers, and like original ToughGard Duct Liner, has become a favorite in the industry,” says Renee Chesler, Vice President and General Manager of CertainTeed’s Mechanical Insulation Business. “It provides unparalleled acoustic, thermal and moisture control, making it ideal for performing arts venues, where the comfort and positive experience of an audience means everything. We are pleased to be part of this exciting project at Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.”

Characteristics

Located in downtown Kansas City, construction of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts began in October 2006. The impressive 284,780 square-foot structure is the product of an internationally renowned designed team, consisting of Moshe Safdie & Associates (Somerville, Mass.), Theatre Projects Consultants (London), Nagata Acoustics (Tokyo) and BNIM Architects (Kansas City). It will feature two state-of-the-art performance venues: a 1,800-seat proscenium theater and a 1,600-seat concert hall and will be the new performance home of the Kansas City Symphony, the Lyric Opera of Kansas City and the Kansas City Ballet. Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts is expected to be complete in time for the 2010 to 2011 performance season.
