Part of the Place des Arts complex, The Maison symphonique de Montréal is a concert hall of located in the heart of downtown Montreal.

Inaugurated in 2011, the Maison symphonique de Montréal is a classical music concert hall that meets the highest international standards for natural acoustics, stage layout and architecture. Its perfect visibility and enveloping privacy offer viewers an exceptional audio and visual experience. The symphony hall seats 2100 guests.

Challenges

This project in downtown Montreal needed to meet very demanding noise and air quality constraints. The project required the construction of 14 systems from 2600 to 25,000 cfm while meeting sound levels of NC-20 in the theater.

Solution

The Ingenia sales team worked with the consulting engineer to build ventilation units to meet the very strict acoustic criteria. The fans were meticulously selected to obtain the lowest sound and vibration levels possible. The walls of the sections other than the wet sections were made using acoustically insulated panels with perforated inner walls. In order to avoid any risk of condensation and humidity in the wet sections, the panels of these sections were  insulated with polyurethane.
