Rising 17 stories and offering prime views of downtown Denver, 1900 16th Street also included 24,000 square feet of retail space. It earned a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, and the University of Denver’s Burns School of Real Estate and Construction named it Project of the Year.
Shen Milsom & Wilke acousticians conducted vibration and noise level measurements to determine the effect of train and light rail traffic, train horns and train couplings on the building, and we provided recommendations to control the transmitted noise and vibration. We also reviewed the mechanical systems and provided noise mitigation recommendations. These recommendations included sound isolation construction at the mechanical equipment locations, duct-borne noise analysis and vibration isolation for mechanical equipment. Sound isolation and room acoustic recommendations were provided for shared building spaces, such as the lobby and conference areas.
