A new addition that doesn’t affect treasured art.

When the AGO was adding a Frank Gehry designed building, we were happy to come on board. Part of the expansion included a new ballroom which raised concerns about noise control and also vibrational issues with regards to the art in adjacent rooms.
We determined that a tuned mass damper in the ballroom floor was the best solution to control the vibration so we developed the design and specification requirements for it.
Now the AGO can use the ballroom without any negative impact to the art itself or the other spaces in the building.
