The BOK Center is the home of the Tulsa Shock WNBA basketball team, the Tulsa Oilers CHL hockey team, and the Tulsa Talons AF2 arena football team. The BOK Center also hosts concerts, family shows, ice shows and other world-class entertainment.
With its sweeping curves of glass and stainless steel, the Cesar Pelli designed BOK Center is an architectural icon, anchoring Tulsa’s downtown revitalization efforts.
AVANT ACOUSTICS provided the following services:
- Architectural acoustics and mechanical noise consultation
- Sound reinforcement system design
- On-site system commissioning, including operator training and assistance during the first use
AVANT ACOUSTICS worked closely with the architects in the selection and placement of interior finishes to provide an appropriate balance of liveliness desired for sporting events and a more controlled acoustical environment for concerts.
AVANT ACOUSTICS also designed the sound systems for the arena bowl, private suites, concourses and back-of-house areas. The sound reinforcement system in the bowl consists of distributed three-way floor coverage and satellite loudspeaker clusters providing complete coverage to the 18,000 plus seats.
