University Of Albany Water Tower Rehabilitation Project

Sound Seal's Industrial BBC product was used during the The University of Albany water tower rehabilitation project.


Background:
The University of Albany water tower project, located within the Podium of the Uptown campus is a central architectural element to the University Campus. The 248 foot tall tower includes a 311,000 gallon water tank which supplies water volume and pressure for the standpipe systems for the 24 story residence and other buildings on campus.


Situation:
The rehab project included sand blasting and repainting the 248' tall water tower and also refurbishing the water fountain area.  This presented a noise concern while classes are in session.

Solution:
Sound Seal exterior grade sound curtains; BBC-13X-2" were used for the higher wind exposure areas on the water tower.  The BBC-EXT-N-2" product was used for the water fountain area & lower water tower
