Minnesota State Capitol - Saint Paul, Minnesota
Noise Control & Measurement
Saint Paul, Minnesota
Built in 1905, the historic Minnesota State Capitol received a $272 million restoration that was completed in 2017. ESI worked with HGA Architects and Engineers to evaluate room, acoustics, reduce HVAC noise and vibration, design interior wall assemblies for improved speech privacy, and perform room acoustic and sound transmission testing services. One of the biggest challenges was to evaluate the existing acoustics in the House of Representatives, Senate and Supreme Court chambers, and develop recommendations for enhanced acoustics and speech intelligibility.
