SIA Acoustics LLC, an acoustical design firm based in New York City, has opened a new office near Hollywood, which is located at 3575 Cahuenga Blvd., Suite 254, Los Angeles, Calif. 90068. "Our West Coast expansion is the next step to allow us to better serve our music, film and architectural clients on the West Coast," states Sam Berkow, founder and partner of SIA Acoustics who will be managing the Los Angeles office. Partner Steve Sockey will manage the New York City office.
The firm has an established track record of tackling challenging acoustic design and consulting projects, from concert venues and recording/broadcast studios to post-production facilities and event spaces. The firm's accomplishments include a technical and acoustical design that overcomes the challenges of an immense 54-foot glass wall at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Allen Room.
Recent projects include acoustical design and consulting for The Pearl at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, the Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music at New York University, the Botnick Mixing Facility, and special events at Madison Square Park, Lincoln Center's New York State Theatre and the Esplanade Theaters on the Bay in Singapore. Other notable clients have included Hollywood Bowl, the Grand Ole Opry, AirShow Mastering, Sound Stages at Paramount Studio, Faith Community Church and many others.
Berkow and Sockey believe that the expansion of SIA Acoustics benefits both existing and new clients. "By having staff on both coasts, we will be able to respond even more quickly and reduce travel time to reach our clients," states Sockey. "This is important to us because we pride ourselves on providing great client service and dependable relationships."
