What We Do Architectural Acoustics and System Design Kehl Associates™ is a specialty consulting firm that provides design expertise in architectural acoustics, sound, audio-visual, theatrical lighting, and stage rigging systems.  Our designs are incorporated into Performing Arts Theatres, Churches, Educational and Athletic Facilities, Government and Corporate Facilities, and a diversity of other facility types.  Architectural Infrastructure for Technology We help your architect design spaces that work for the technology by designing the infrastructure into the building to accommodate the systems in each space.  We critique room geometries and architectural features to ensure good hearing, viewing, sound, and lighting coverage, and adequate space for technology equipment and operation.  We define the electrical, structural, and mechanical systems requirements for proper operation of sound, video, lighting, and rigging systems.  We work with your building design team to incorporate this technology infrastructure into the design of the building. Systems Design and Procurement We design sound, video, lighting, and rigging systems that will serve the users needs and match the acoustics and geometric features of the individual spaces in the facility.  We  provide component level systems drawings, documentation, and specifications for bidding and procurement purposes.  Construction Management and Testing We help manage the construction and systems installation, performing on-site inspections and testing to make sure everything is built and installed as intended. Design-Build  We also offer Design-Build options that provide single-source design, sales, and installation of acoustical treatments as well as sound, audio-visual, theatrical lighting, and stage rigging systems.  Contact us for more information.

Historic Theater Renovation in St. Paul  Kehl Associates Chosen for Palace Theater Acoustics The St. Paul Palace Theater, a 3.000-seat theater originally constructed in 1916 for vaudeville performances, was eventually converted for use as a movie theater, but has basically stood dark and silent since 1977.  The  Palace was purchased by the city of St. Paul in 2014 and the 2-year  renovation project commenced.      Oertel Architects was selected for the project, which was filled with  major construction and budgetary challenges.  The acoustic challenges of the theater renovation were also significant  and of primary importance for this music venue.  Robert  Kehl, a native of St. Paul and founder of Kehl Associates, was very pleased that his firm was selected for the  acoustical design of the renovation.  His team worked  closely with the project architects and engineers to  overcome the challenges and obstacles presented by the renovation of this 100-year-old historic theater.    STAY TUNED......next month we’ll bring the story of  the acoustic challenges encountered in this project.   Email us to make sure you’re on our mailing list.
