The new Mount Pleasant Municipal Complex was designed to provide a modern, eco-friendly base of operations for one of the nation’s most popular and rapidly expanding communities. Project Architect Sam Herin did a masterful job of blending cutting edge technology with an air of southern charm, successfully capturing the essence of coastal South Carolina.
Located in both a hurricane and severe seismic zone, the Municipal Complex is classified as an “Essential Facility”, consequently subject to the most stringent building code requirements in the country. Acousti worked closely with the project team, code officials and ceiling manufacturer in order to position the extensive seismic restraint assembly without detracting from the aesthetics of the various ceiling systems.
The council chambers housed in the rotunda received multi tiered floating wood ceilings as well as a custom acoustical wood wall panel system. The wall panels were each precisely sized and radiused in order to follow the rotunda’s curved perimeter walls. Detailed field measurements were provided by Acousti prior to fabrication to ensure an exact fit for this custom, long lead time material.
Acousti was honored to be specifically selected by the designer to perform the complex custom ceiling and wall panel installation on this project. We made it our mission to ensure that this faith was well placed.
