Building on a long history of involvement in complex renovation and historical preservation projects, TSAV is proud of the results of nearly two years of work with First Congregational Church of Atlanta. The project, involving a complete renovation of the National Historic Registry property and integration of campus wide systems, is considered a tremendous success. Sound quality being paramount in supporting the wide range of sophisticated worship and performance events pioneered by Dr. Andrews, the design team’s approach to the facility focused on intelligibility and accuracy. Leveraging first the natural properties of the space, TSAV’s engineering team working with Bose Professional’s Modeler and Auditioner systems then built electronic systems to enhance what was already there. The results are both pragmatic and impressive.
