A quick bit of advice, please.
It's possible that in the next 12 months I will
need a reasonably thought-through specification for an install in a new build venue in
the East Midlands area.
This hypothetical venue would probably be a
warehouse-type construction, with a main (single-level, high-ceilling) auditorium capable
of seating up to 1000, and at least one further venue with seating for up to 250, with
multiple smaller conference rooms.
Uses for both would be mainly live music and
speech, with multitrack recording and AV distribution throughout the building also a
requirement (currently running something similar in the current venue on Cat5).
I've been to several venues of this type (mainly churches) in which a decent rig (on
paper) has been killed by the nasty acoustics of a metal box, and would prefer to try and
get some acoustic design basics into any plans at an early stage, if possible.
This is way beyond my level of expertise, and I want it to be right first time. Does
anyone have suggestions for individuals/companies with whom they have had personal
dealings in the past, who would be in their element with this kind of consultancy job?
Feel free to email me if you don't want to be seen to be advertising on here.
