Sound Check

Sound Check

On Thursday our Sanctuary Construction Committee was joined by Beth Syverson and Steve Morihiro for a productive planning session on Zoom with professionals from our acoustic-sound system consultant Sound Image of San Diego. Our architects from domsstudio led the discussion. Among the topics were the acoustics of the room and how adjustments in sound might be achieved through baffles and building materials. The consultants also focused on our audio and video equipment needs and placement for the new sanctuary and how to extend the audio and video into the courtyard, Daniels Hall and the Victoria Room.

We then reviewed revised concepts for the sanctuary that address the need to meet code requirements that are in place because the sprinklered sanctuary structure must be a certain distance from existing campus structures that do not have sprinklers. The revised concepts also reflected some changes needed to be made due to the increase in building material costs.

The architects are preparing new project renderings to reflect the newest refinements of the design. We look forward to sharing these revised plans with you in the near future starting on Saturday, July 17th at the Isa Graves sculpture wine & cheese reception in the courtyard. We look forward to seeing you there from 4-7 pm.


Craig Spery is the chair of the sanctuary planning and construction committee, a subgroup of the Property Use Group (PUG).
