Honoring development of custom triangle baffles installed at ESIF.
pinta acoustic inc.,Minneapolis, Minn., 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, the 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.
pinta acoustic manufactures a broad range of architectural acoustic wall and ceiling panels, specialty clouds, baffles and other acoustical products for commercial and industrial applications.
