Manila Greenbelt Manila Greenbelt

One of our engineers, John Greenlaw, was recently in Manila where he visited the Greenbelt indoor-outdoor mall.
Portions of this very popular multi-use residential-commercial development were designed by Callison Architects
and are helping introduce sustainable design to the Philipines. Manila is working diligently on improving
infrastructure and the quality of developments and has made substantial progress in the last decade.

As an aside, the native historical gold jewelry exhibit at the adjacent Ayala Museum is very much worth a visit the next time you are in the neighborhood...

Greenbusch designed a custom sound enclosure for a client looking to significantly reduce sound emissions from a custom blower. Our objective was to achieve a level of 60 dBA at 6 feet. Working with Cutting Edge Laser (CEL) Manufacturing we produced a prototype that achieved this level at only 4 feet, achieving a noise reduction of 25 dBA (about 1/6th as loud). All delivered to the client on schedule and in budget.

Also, the Everett Community College Fitness Center has been certified LEED Gold. The project was designed by SRG; we provided acoustic and audio/video system design.

And for some non-project related news; a photograph by our Audio Video Consultant, Lindsay Smith was use in Michelle Obama's new book American Grown.
