The proposed project involves acoustical upgrades to the various educational spaced within an existing two-story classroom building at Knox Middle School, including 14 classrooms, one science classroom and one music room. An acoustical study determined the need to add ceiling-mounted acoustica; panels to reduce echo and improve the delivery of audible instruction in these educational spaces. Each classroom is proposed to include approximately 350 square feet of acoustical panels. The ceiling-mounted panels would be placed in each educational space to allow for the best performance, and would avoid conflicts with building security, electrical, and mechanical systems.
Consists of the operation, repair, maintenance, permitting, leasing, licensing, or minor alteration of existing public or private structures, facilities, mechanical equipment, or topographical features, involving negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's determination. Consists of minor additions to existing schools within existing schools grounds where the addition does not increase original student capacity by more than 25% or ten classrooms, whichever is less.
