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.

Project description:

This mosque with a clear modern architecture was to be designed from room- and electro-acoustical points of view. In the mosque building, there is not only the main hall under the architecturally spectacular dome (volume 15600 m³), ​​but also a second, equally large hall with a lower ceiling height below (volume 7100 m³).

For both halls, room acoustics measures have been developed and studied in order to ensure a suitable hearing and to prevent adverse reflections. The prerequisites for high speech intelligibility when using the sound reinforcement systems, which are intended to be planned on the basis of DSP-controlled line arrays, were to be secured.
