pinta acoustic, inc. has been presented with the bronze 2013 Construction Excellence Award in the acoustical solutions category. The Ceilings and Interior Systems Construction Association (CISCA) recognized pinta acoustic for the custom willtec® triangle baffles that are installed at the Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF). These prestigious awards acknowledge CISCA members who produce the year’s finest examples of interior commercial construction.
When the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colo., designed ESIF, one of its primary goals was to showcase sustainable design and energy efficiency. ESIF’s office wing features open-plan office areas with large windows and a metal ceiling deck, which reflect sound and could make it harder for workers to communicate and concentrate. To extend light reflectancy and reduce noise and echo, the architects selected pinta acoustic’s custom willtec triangle baffles. Without detracting from the décor, these attractive and sound-absorptive triangle baffles make the office areas more productive environments with greater speech intelligibility.
Highlighting all winning projects, CISCA representatives presented the Construction Excellence Awards at a breakfast during the CISCA Convention ceremony in Las Vegas, Nev., on April 2, 2014.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by CISCA for our innovative acoustical design solutions,” says Bob Donohue, sales manager, western region. “This project is a perfect example of a custom solution that was designed to meet specific customer requirements and enhance the décor.”
