National Dance Institute
Location 250 Bowery, New York, NY
JRM Construction Management completed the build out of a new facility for the National Dance Institute at 250 Bowery in New York City. The project scope consisted of offices, dance studios, a performance space as well as ancillary spaces located in the ground floor and cellar of the existing PS- 90 condo building. All of the studios including the performance space were designed as noise critical areas. JRM incorporated 3-layer gypsum board that was acoustically isolated and separated in construction of the walls and ceilings. To achieve this, 2 parallel surfaces separated by a 2” air break were built ensuring there was no acoustic transfer from inner to outer surface. The ceiling construction was based on Mason Industries spring isolators spaced on a 48” grid supporting against a 3-layer gypsum board cap.
