Designed by architect William Burnet Tuthill and built by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie in 1891, Carnegie Hall is one of the most prestigious venues in the world for both classical music and popular music.
We designed new HVAC, electrical and fire protection systems for the main concert hall. We carefully integrated all work to maintain the historic integrity of the facility. The stage renovation consisted of restoring the shell of the stage to its original appearance and configuration.
Part of this change was the installation of new air handling systems incorporating sound attenuation, one of a series of design elements catering to stringent acoustical criteria. We incorporated air distribution elements into the design to be as inconspicuous as possible. We also equipped the stage with new concert theatrical lighting in a way that compliments the building’s architectural style.
