B3 - Considerations for Facility Design

Paul McLane, Radio World
Sam Berkow, SIA Acoustics
William Hallisky, Meridian Design
John Storyk, Walters Storyk

A roundtable chat with design experts Sam Berkow, John Storyk, and William Hallinsky. We’ve modified the format of this popular session further to allow attendees to hear from several of today’s top facility designers in a more relaxed and less hurried format.

What makes for an exceptional facility? What are the top pitfalls of facility design? Bring your cup of coffee and share in the conversation as Radio World U.S. Editor in Chief Paul McLane talks with Sam Berkow of SIA Acoustics, John Storyk of Walters-Storyk Design Group, and William Hallinsky of Meridian Design Associates, Architects, to learn what leaders in radio/television broadcast and production studios are doing today in architectural, acoustic, and facility design.

How are the demands of today’s multi-platform broadcasters changing design of facilities? How do streaming, video for radio and new media affect the process? What does it really mean to say a facility is “green”? How should broadcasters handle cross-training? What are the most common pitfalls broadcasters should avoid in designing and budgeting for a facility? What key decisions must you make today to ensure that your fabulous new facility will still be doing the job in 10 or 20 years?
