Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center
SFS Architecture, AVANT ACOUSTICS, and other teammates took this long-vacated bowling alley and ice rink, and spun it into gold. The Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center is already a community cornerstone.
AVANT ACOUSTICS provided the following services:
- Acoustical consulting
- Mechanical noise control consultation
- Audio-visual system design
- Sound reinforcement system design
- Paging system design
- On-site commissioning, including operator training and assistance during the first use
The black box theatre at the Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center boasts a 360º rotating digital projection system and dynamic audio system, which can be adapted to any orientation of the theatre. The digital AV network and remote-controlled camera allow live video monitoring from backstage, as well as remote orchestra capabilities. The wireless user control interface has customized theatrical effects designed especially for the space.
In addition, AVANT designed a building-wide paging system and digital signage throughout the facility. AVANT designed unique AV systems for combinable event spaces, arts classrooms, and rehearsal studios, as well as hearing assistance systems and an audio system for the dance studio.
