ADA Acoustics & Media Consultants GmbH

After the defeat of the German division, and upon meeting the objective requirements, the engineering firm ADA Acoustic Design Ahnert was initially founded with two colleagues. From day one, the software program EASE, which was at that time still DOS-based, was available. As a result, the feasibility of room- and electro-acoustic designs could be efficiently verified. Large projects during the early 90s, such as the planning of a new sound reinforcement system for the German Opera (Deutsche Oper) in Berlin, supported the start-up phase.

A similar experience was gathered during the reconstruction of the Plenary Assembly of the Parliament in Ankara, where in 1996, for the first time, a fingerprint system for the identification of the Members of Parliament was introduced, which is still in operation in its original form till today. The number of awarded contracts in the country and abroad was then increasing as well as the number of employees. In 2010, the activities profile of the sole-property company ADA Acoustic Design Ahnert was transferred to ADA Acoustics & Media Consultants GmbH. Major tasks are still ahead of our team, such as the extensive Al Maktoum International Airport, which is currently under construction and is intended in its first construction phase to serve around 120 million passengers per year.

As part of the rectification of flood damage, the orchestra pit was completely rebuilt.

Since the musicians have always criticized the room acoustic conditions in the pit, mainly because of high sound levels, the new construction had to significantly improve the acoustics. Therefore, the clear height was increased in the main area, the covered area was significantly reduced by shifting the stage leading edge backwards, and a new secondary structure in the form of variable wall absorbers and mobile partitions was developed and realized.

Measures were developed to minimize the noise resulting in the hall due to the new lift podiums.
