MAPLE

Quarter sawn White Maple,
both solid and veneer, was the
primary project wood, Klinar
reports. Fire-rated medium
density fiberboard was
included for maximum sound
control. A tinted dull finish was
used to even color variations
on the Maple, allowing for a
light, bright ambiance.
"Wood in recital halls
is traditional and linked
emotionally to warmth, and for
many people to acoustically
moving performances,"
notes Rachel Prinkey of Penn
State. "The use of wood on
unexpected surfaces supported
the visual feel of warmth for
the audience while keeping
with the non-traditional design
of the space."

The suspended ceiling
was the most intricate, timeconsuming and logistically
challenging portion of
the project, recalls Klinar.
The ceiling is comprised
of a central system of
paneling referred to as "the
cloud." Shallow and deep
diffuser panels were placed
strategically for acoustical
excellence.
"The original design of
the ceiling weighed around
90 tons, the equivalent of
hanging 50 cars from the
ceiling" she explains. "In
an effort to reduce some of
the extraordinary weight,
we were able to offer an
acoustically acceptable
design alternative to heavy
solid MDF panels. Still, at
the redesigned 70 tons,
careful attention needed to
be made to the method of
handling the 300+ panels.
With 3-D modeling, a superior
collaborative effort was made
with inhouse engineers,
outsourced engineering, and
shop and field carpenters to
ensure the massive structure
was hung safely."

Giffin serves a diverse
clientele, including commercial,
education, entertainment, food
service, government, healthcare,
residential and retail.
