Florida International University Green Library Auditorium Renovations
The GL-100 Auditorium modernization project required the complete demolition and remodeling of approximately 5,100sf of underutilized teaching auditorium space. The completed project has created a 3,250sf performance venue accommodating visiting lecturers and small music ensembles. The 339 seat facility is supported by an additional 1,850sf of space housing a rear screen projection room and related storage and equipment space.
MC Harry Associates introduced all new floor, wall and ceiling treatments; new terraced seating; a programmable lighting system; state of the art audio-visual infrastructure; a series of acoustic control strategies including entry vestibules, a sound-soak panel system to minimize reverberation, and all new variable volume, low velocity, high efficiency A/C equipment and ductwork. Accessibility issues were mitigated with the introduction of a chair lift in conjunction with seven individual wheelchair seating positions and a custom designed speaker’s podium.
