Clover Park Technical College

Lakewood, WA

McGranahan Architects



This project included a new Student Center that encompasses retail spaces related to and in support of the academic programs within the building. We also provided acoustical guidance for a complex Health Care Facility for the college.


The primary challenges were to resolve the acoustical issues for such a diverse program. There were many areas of the design that needed attention with regard to acoustics.


SSA developed recommendations and provided an analysis that catered to the unique facets of the project. Both buildings required mechanical noise control, sound transmission control between adjacent spaces, and sound control for achieving quality acoustics within the various spaces.
