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.

Kehl Associates Back for Second Performance  Acoustical Treatment Completion at St. Paul’s Palace Theatre The recent renovation of St. Paul’s Palace Theatre was a smashing success for  this 3.000-seat theatre, originally constructed in 1916 for vaudeville  performances.  Due to budget constraints, however, some of the  recommendations of the Acoustical Consultant for the project, Kehl Associates, could not be followed. Although the main theatre and the enormous balcony  received priority attention, budget did not allow for acoustical treatment in the under-balcony areas or the lower side-walls.    First Avenue, the operator of the venue, was so thrilled with the original acoustic design provided by Kehl Associates for the main part of the theatre that they asked them back to  design matching acoustics for the remaining areas. The project is to include additional draperies for the lower side-walls as well as under-balcony acoustical ceiling  treatment.   Kehl Associates and sister company, KSG Sound & Video, are currently working with Oertel  Architects on the acoustic treatment design and  methods of attaching support hardware to the fragile 100-year-old plaster walls and ceilings.  The project is scheduled for soon completion.
