Cerami recently provided acoustical, audiovisual, IT and security design for the Core Club, a private, high-end club in Midtown Manhattan. The five-story building includes multiple restaurants, bars, and lounges, as well as a fitness center, arcade, Aqua Lounge, private dining room, and a screening room.
To remedy noise transmission from the club’s kitchen to adjacent dining areas, our acoustic consultants worked with the architect to move the kitchen to the first floor. We made specifications for the building’s HVAC system and our steps included adding a resiliently isolated drywall ceiling detail for the appropriate reverberation time to be achieved and the ceiling was mounted on spring hangers to mitigate vibration.
Our audiovisual consultants designed and specified a facility-wide high-end music and television distribution system with multiple displays. In addition, we designed the private dining room to have presentation capabilities and tabletop audio conferencing. The screening room was equipped with digital video/data projection, surround sound and a remote control system.
Our IT designs included developing voice, data and security networks, racks, hardware, pathways, cabling and cabling infrastructure throughout the entire club with controls located in the AV/IT technology room. Additionally, we detailed the wireless network system that services the club’s computers, as well as surveillance cameras and video monitors, control systems and intrusion detection and alarm notification, necessary in a private club.
