                    [post_content] => When KUOW, the University of Washington’s public radio station, decided to move off-campus, they turned to RBDG for design of their new facility. The University chose a building that is actually three separate structures with shared core spaces and several other tenants, which presented a unique challenge to the RBDG team. Because KUOW occupies parts of the second and third floors in two of the structures, floating floor systems were required for each acoustically sensitive space, and all walls and ceilings were fully isolated from the building structure.

The new station includes four on-air and production control rooms, a talk studio, three edit booths, two voice-over rooms and a performance studio. This last feature allows KUOW to produce programs that require a larger acoustical space, such as musical performances or town hall meetings. KUOW also has a significant emphasis on local news and provides regional coverage of stories for NPR, so they needed a large newsroom to accommodate 21 news staffers and the resource materials they share. All of the acoustic spaces are connected to a technical operations hub that that contains the station’s shared audio and broadcast equipment.

Nearly ten years after their initial construction, KUOW acquired the remainder of their upper floor in order to expand their news bullpen, development offices, and administrative areas. RBDG provided planning and interior design services to ensure a seamless connection to the existing spaces.

                    [post_content] => Russ Berger Design Group provided acoustical and interior architectural design for the broadcast portion of the new Greenspun College of Urban Affairs (journalism and media studies) at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. The new facility enables journalism and media studies faculty and students to explore the limits of new technologies and to develop innovative partnerships between traditional and emerging media.

The 28,000 sq. ft. all-digital, high definition broadcast facility includes two television studios, non-linear editing bays, three radio production and performance studios, writing labs, advanced editing labs, a converged media lab, and a 200-seat auditorium built to accommodate video and audio production. UNLV-TV and KUNV-FM are both working broadcast stations that are also used for student instruction.

In keeping with the college’s mission to improve the quality of urban life, Greenspun Hall contains several sustainable design elements, including an energy-conserving photovoltaic array covering the courtyard and a chilled-beam heating and cooling system. The project has earned LEED ® Gold certification.

                    [post_content] => BYU Broadcasting (BYUB) is home to Brigham Young University’s broadcast channels. From the Provo facility, four television and five radio entities – among them BYUtv, BYU Television International, KBYU Eleven, BYU Radio, Classical 89 KBYU-FM, and Create TV – are produced and distributed via broadcast, cable, satellite and the Internet.

BYUB now operates from a 100,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art HD production and distribution facility that consolidates the content creation and distribution operations which previously originated from two older, separate TV and radio facilities. RBDG helped design the radio and television broadcast spaces to achieve a level of acoustical and audio quality that would live up to BYU Broadcast’s global reputation.

The new BYUB facility features three television studios, three audio post production studios, a recording studio, four voice-over rooms, two on-air radio studios, 15 video editing rooms, and six master control (distribution) rooms where outgoing signals are monitored for quality. One of the television studios is a combination studio/auditorium/screening room with in-house audio mixing capability. In addition, there are two production control rooms, each with their own audio control room, for live and taped studio productions. Tie-lines between the TV audio network and radio network enable simulcast of events.

The diversity of technical spaces under one roof made this project particularly challenging. The acoustical design had to ensure there would be adequate sound isolation between rooms, quiet mechanical systems, and room acoustics that made it possible to accurately monitor audio programs. It required a lot of coordination, starting with the earliest design and continuing until construction was complete.

The RBDG team was faced with having air-handling equipment located on the second floor immediately adjacent to the studios, with huge ducts traveling overhead to feed the rooms beyond. Their solution was to create a separate interior concrete deck for the main studio, so the ducts could be routed through the interstitial space without having their breakout noise impact the production activity below. The result: background noise levels in Studio A are below a Noise Criterion rating of NC-15.

In addition to the technical and digital/online operations of the radio and television channels, the facility has offices and support spaces to provide for a staff of more than 300 full-time employees, part-time production crew, and students. RBDG helped ensure that the entire building would achieve BYU’s goal of improving its working environment for BYUB’s production team and the overall quality of programming for its viewers.

                    [post_content] => For this 90,000 square foot building, RBDG designed technical facilities which include two audio recording studio complexes, a MIDI lab, a television studio with associated video and audio control rooms, two video post production rooms, eight booths, a digital graphics lab, central machine room, electronic newsroom, and a 30-foot mobile teleproduction vehicle with maintenance areas, along with traditional classrooms, seminar rooms and staff offices.

One unique aspect of each audio suite is the teaching lab adjacent to the control room. The labs provide an acoustically accurate listening environment for the entire class. Images from remote pan and tilt cameras in the control room and studio are fed to three screens in the labs. The students can actually see more at one time than they would if they were in the control room. In the audio studios, the control room by itself is a production facility. The adjacent teaching labs accommodate 25 students on tiered seating. A complex communications systems links the control room lab and studio to allow interaction among the students, instructor and production personnel.

Besides the design requirements of creating appropriate room acoustics within each of the diverse production spaces, the concentration of acoustically sensitive spaces demanded special attention to the sound isolation construction surrounding the individual rooms. These facilities also have exacting criteria for extremely low noise environments, which necessitated extraordinary acoustical performance from the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing infrastructure that serves them.

                    [post_content] => Well known for WBUR programs like “Car Talk,” “The Connection” and “Only a Game,” this Public Radio member and leading syndicated programming producer relocated and expanded its facilities to a new structure totaling over 16,000 square feet. RBDG provided acoustical/architectural consulting and design focus for the detailed performance requirements of the broadcast studio and its technical spaces.

Although radio is not usually thought of as a visual medium, its interior image is important, and the new studios are the highlight of the space. Completed in the spring of 1996, the facility includes four control rooms each with associated studios, booths and support spaces. RBDG found it necessary to increase the ceiling height by an additional six feet to achieve the sound isolation, low noise floor, and acoustical character appropriate for a market leader of this caliber. In addition, the studios were conceived as rooms within a room, acoustically isolated from the main structure by floating floors, double-wall construction and sound isolation ceilings.

                    [post_content] => Russ Berger Design Group provided design services for an expansion of WBAA AM/FM at Purdue University that nearly doubled the size of the station. WBAA is the longest continually operating radio station in Indiana, licensed in 1922. Located directly beneath Purdue’s famed Elliott Hall of Music, the facility was originally an AM station constructed in the 1940s, with FM operation added in 1993.

To accomplish a renovation in place without interruption of the broadcast signal, RBDG proposed that the construction be accomplished in two phases. All-new technical spaces were built first, including two mirror-image control rooms and studios and a central technical operations center between them, along with a new public entrance and a seating area that displays the station’s collection of radio memorabilia. Once those spaces were complete, including the installation of entirely new broadcast equipment, it was possible to switch over the operations and begin broadcast from the new on-air control room. With the staff relocated to temporary office space, the existing facility was renovated to create new offices, editing rooms, and a variety of support spaces.

                    [post_content] => Completed in 2011, the 12,000 sq.ft. Joan and Andy Horner Hall on the campus of Dallas Baptist University was built to support DBU’s creative degree programs for communications, fine arts, and music and audio engineering. Within Horner Hall, RBDG designed a 2,400 sq.ft. recording studio complex that provides DBU students exposure to the full complement of contemporary and traditional production tools found in a fully professional studio suite.

The Music Business Recording Studios is comprised of a main control room, featuring an AVID D-Command ES 24 control surface and a seven-foot wide screen, a tracking studio, and an adjoining isolation booth. Two smaller control rooms each feature an AVID C|24 control surface and are fully integrated with the main control room, yet allow students to mix projects independently.

RBDG’s design incorporated floating floors for sound isolation and technical infrastructure for connectivity and accessibility in the studios spaces and the central equipment room. A powerful communications system links the control room to a separate Mac lab, equipped with the latest Pro Tools technology, enabling students in the lab to view what is being taught in the studio.

            [post_content] => When KUOW, the University of Washington’s public radio station, decided to move off-campus, they turned to RBDG for design of their new facility. The University chose a building that is actually three separate structures with shared core spaces and several other tenants, which presented a unique challenge to the RBDG team. Because KUOW occupies parts of the second and third floors in two of the structures, floating floor systems were required for each acoustically sensitive space, and all walls and ceilings were fully isolated from the building structure.

The new station includes four on-air and production control rooms, a talk studio, three edit booths, two voice-over rooms and a performance studio. This last feature allows KUOW to produce programs that require a larger acoustical space, such as musical performances or town hall meetings. KUOW also has a significant emphasis on local news and provides regional coverage of stories for NPR, so they needed a large newsroom to accommodate 21 news staffers and the resource materials they share. All of the acoustic spaces are connected to a technical operations hub that that contains the station’s shared audio and broadcast equipment.

Nearly ten years after their initial construction, KUOW acquired the remainder of their upper floor in order to expand their news bullpen, development offices, and administrative areas. RBDG provided planning and interior design services to ensure a seamless connection to the existing spaces.
