77: Sound Isolation | Paul D. Wachholz College Center

1h 00m 50s |
In this episode, Cherise is joined by David Koel, Principal-in-Charge at Cushing Terrell and Shawn Pauly, Project Architect at Cushing Terrell. They discuss the Flathead Valley Community College, Paul D. Wachholz College Center in Kalispell, Montana.

The Wachholz College Center is a 67,000-square-foot facility that combines two distinct venues into one stunning building on the Flathead Valley Community College campus.

The goal of the project was to meld two programs that are usually separate - performing arts and athletics - into one grand facility. This required the delivery of superior acoustic performance as well as acoustic separation of the different programs, while connecting the two in a natural, harmonious manner.
