There is an outdoor ice rink that is operated from early November through the spring. The ice for the rink is artificially made by a 76’ x 8’ Trane Chiller located on a 20’ high mezzanine in a courtyard surrounded on three sides by tall buildings. In the summertime, the chiller provides cooling for the buildings in the central hub. The location of the chiller proved to be a problem acoustically. The surrounding buildings amplified the noise level to a point that fell outside the city ordinance of 50 dBA.
The Project Parameters:
- Started by gathering all the relevant information including a sound study commissioned by the city and technical data on the chiller.
- Analyzed structural capability of mezzanine and advised the city on required modifications.
- Provided a proposal for a Modular Steel Sound Enclosure specialized to fit custom around the chiller enclosure.
- Provided 4” thick acoustical panels to custom build enclosure with silenced air intake and exhaust
The eNoise Control Solution:
Early attempts by the city to put acoustical band-aids on the problem failed to solve the problem so they reached out to eNoise Control. We gathered all the relevant information including a sound study commissioned by the city and technical data on the chiller. Early on it was determined that we had a complex problem on our hands that required a eNoise Control team approach to problem solving.
This project was a success because we employed a deep team approach with members from multiple areas of expertise all of whom understood the final goal and worked together to achieve it.
