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.

ADA scope of services:
Electroacoustics, video systems: preliminary planning to execution supervision

Project data:

  • Start of planning: 2014
  • Construction from December 2015 in stages in session-free time
  • Completion: April 2016
  • Scope of the performed services: approx. 420000 EUR

The conference system in the plenary hall of the Bundesrat including its delegate’s units has been customized and replaced . In addition to a new central unit, the infrared transmission system for interpreters has also been renewed. During the execution it was determined that the existing loudspeaker system was partially damaged; a replacement of the system was therefore carried out at a short notice. In a forthcoming construction phase, the sound reinforcement concept including the control room will be extensively renewed in the Bundesrat.

Likewise, modifications and additions to the network of public and private broadcasters installed in the building will be carried out in order to cope with the technological progress made since moving into the building in 2000.

Basically, ADA has been working on various planning tasks in the Bundesrat since 1996.
