Select Projects

Clark Center at Stanford University

Palo Alto

Evaluated proposed building for existing, ambient ground vibration. Conducted FEA studies of floor structures to optimize the structural system design to meet vibration criteria.

Hawthorne Folsom Place Redevelopment

San Francisco

Mechanical equipment noise and vibration control for redevelopment of existing office buildings. Predicted structureborne noise from rooftop mechanical equipment using FEA.

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center


New York City

Evaluated groundborne noise and vibration impacts due to construction and operation of the Second Avenue Subway, and its possible effect on a new building at the Cancer Center.
