Community oriented projects that JLRD has provided innovative design for include The Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach, The City of Aventura Performing Arts Theater, and The College of Arts and Letters "Living Room Theaters" located at FAU's Boca Raton campus.
Special attention is required on projects such as these with regards to acoustics and sound vibrations. Individual space control must be taken into account to ensure occupancy comfort and lighting control of the different types of space uses. These facilities have large concentrated lighting heat loads and also have large open seating areas where high volumes of people move to and from, requiring proactive heating and cooling, and lighting system control and activation. Vibration from rotating equipment is of special concern, and prevention of noise generated from outside must be prevented from transmitting to interior occupied spaces. JLRD has successfully orchestrated the MEP design requirements as evidenced by LEED accreditation of several of these projects.
