Re: Band Hall Flooring
I can tell you this: admin would be thrilled if you did stained concrete because it will be cheaper and easier to maintain. However, donít let them go down that road unless they are willing to put in the correct soundproofing that such a floor requires. I went through this in my last bandhall that I had. Loved the facility. They let me and my asst. design it. The admin wanted stained concrete, so we called an acoustician and had him figure out what it would take to make it work. Admin agreed and then when we did final inspection, turned out that admin went for a less dense carpeting on the wall and fewer sound panels in the ceiling to reduce cost. The facility was great but the acoustics were boomy enough that it resulted in hearing loss for me from all the constant decibel levels that were above the safety zone. Be vigilant if you go down that road.
