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.

  • Reviewing the execution planning of ATKINS Inc.
  • Execution supervision

In Muscat, the capital of Oman, a new studio complex was to be built consisting of a large TV studio, three medium-sized TV studios, four TV news studios and extensive rooms for radio productions and associated ancillary rooms. The room and building acoustics were planned for the entire complex. The stocky nature of the studio rooms required high demands of the sound insulation of the construction. The ventilation system has also been acoustically planned so that the limits for the permissible noise are not exceeded and the sound insulation of the construction is not impaired by crosstalk through the ventilation. The locally available building materials caused some difficulties. So all the walls were made of lightweight concrete hollow bricks. Due to the low mass of these walls, additional measures had to be taken to meet sound insulation. Therefore, the construction was extended to include materials available in Europe for the high-quality studio rooms, in cooperation with Kaefer Construction GmbH. A lot of attention had to be paid to the implemented studio doors, which led to the partial replacement of locally manufactured doors.
