Devon Energy’s new Corporate Headquarters tower includes auditorium, training spaces, food service areas, operations center, and collaborative work spaces and Cerami & Associates was hired as the acoustical consultant on the project.
Architecturally, Devon has a unique footprint. Creative solutions were employed in the workplace design to provide a collaborative environment and to maintain the acoustical integrity of the conference rooms. Mock ups of workspace systems were tested to ensure that strategic acoustical privacy goals were achieved.
Acoustical modeling of the atrium space provided Devon with the “undiscovered” capabilities of a flexible event hall that would have otherwise just served as a transient space. The 300 seat auditorium serves primarily as a corporate lecture hall, but it is acoustically flexible to allow for other types of events.
