Boca Beach Club Resort

Summary:

The Boca Beach Club Resort was renovating and expanding, but wanted to avoid a lot of the problems that construction noise can cause. To solve this problem, their architects sought to source some type of outdoor noise barrier system.

Application Introduction:

The Boca Beach Club Resort was expanding to add a luxury mid-rise condominium and refurbish their hotel. However, such activities would produce a lot of noise that would be detrimental to the quiet, beach paradise environment of the club. Blocking the construction noise was imperative. The engineering company, Kimley-Horn & Associates, reached out to IAC acoustics to determine if they could solve the problem. The resort management wished to ensure their guests no disruption during the construction phase.

Treatment Provided:

After careful planning and consultation with the IAC engineering and design team, the project Engineer chose to use the IAC Acoustics Noishield® Sound Barrier Wall System, which is distributed by Acoustical Solutions. The IAC Noishield Sound Barrier panels consist of 14-gauge solid skin and 20-gauge perforated skin. The panels are roll and cold formed button punched to form a five-inch-thick acoustical panel. Fiberglass is the fill material and is non-corrosive, resistant to attack by fungus, fire-resistant, vermin proof and non-hygroscopic.

Materials:

IAC Acoustics Noishield® Sound Barrier Wall with NRC rating of 1.05 and STC rating of 33.

Results:

The architects, engineers, and the Boca Beach Club Resort accomplished exactly what they set out to do. They were able complete the construction process without disrupting guests at the resort.
