MBP has worked with Greater Media for over 25 years and through
dozens of radio studio construction projects. Recent notable projects
consisted of the relocation and consolidation of radio stations in
Boston, Philadelphia and Detroit into central combined structures. In
Boston, all studios were relocated to a new site located next to an
elevated limited access highway, a railway, and also impacted by
aircraft noise. In Philadelphia, an existing site was expanded to
accommodate additional studios. In Detroit, a new building was
constructed to accommodate both the existing and new studios.
Responsibilities included complete acoustical designs for the studio
complexes consisting of 3-5 on-air studios at each site, along with
associated production and edit studios. Designs included interior room
acoustics, isolation between studios, and development of noise control
designs for HVAC systems. Custom designs to control exterior noise
penetration were developed to address the significant exterior noise
load. Designs were also developed for support spaces including
conference rooms and executive offices. Audiovisual designs and
associated specifications were developed for the boardrooms,
conference rooms and for building-wide music and paging systems.
"Absolute technical competence, an in-depth knowledge of
architectural and mechanical construction, and real world
attention to costs is a rare combination in the world of
acoustical consultants - but it absolutely defines MBP."
