This engineering brief will provide sound system engineers, users, and operators with the opportunity to become familiar with the information, processes, and documentation required to successfully coordinate the electrical, rough-in, and general construction requirements of a professionally installed sound system with the needs of architects, engineers, and contractors responsible for construction projects. The brief will include a categorized list of the 24 points of information that every architect, engineer, and construction professional needs to know about each and every sound system device to be implemented on a construction or renovation project. The presenter maintains 30 years of audio experience including front of house engineer for national recording artists, large scale integration as a sound systems contractor to complete professional design services for recital halls, performing arts centers, corporate, entertainment, and house of worship facilities.
