Pelonis Sound and Acoustics is a full service company dedicated to excellence in the field of studio design and consultation, acoustic analysis and measurement, construction and installation solutions for multimedia production facilities, performance venues, places of worship and theaters.
The company's philosophy is based on the fundamental concept that architectural design, acoustic engineering, ergonomics, construction, equipment and aesthetics must be strategically balanced to provide a thriving, harmonious and creative working environment.
*** Establishing balance in space is of paramount importance, as it parallels the importance of having balance in all aspects of one's life. Determining a client's needs beyond what they feel they want, and achieving goals and then taking them further are core components of the company's philosophy. ***
Balance is the key to optimizing artistic, spiritual and physical energies. When combined with the laws of physics, facilities designed by Pelonis Sound and Acoustics are consistently among the most musical and transparent facilities in the world.
The Pelonis Sound and Acoustics team, headed by Chris Pelonis, is among the most technologically advanced and creative in the areas of architecture, engineering, wiring and construction technology, interior design, and equipment specification and installation.
Chris Pelonis is highly respected throughout the industry and regarded as one of the foremost authorities in the area of acoustic design and ergonomics. He is a veteran of the music/audio industry, with more than 25 years experience in a variety of capacities. In addition to being an acoustical designer, consultant and manufacturer, he is also a professional musician / recording artist, engineer / producer, studio owner and record label executive.
In 1986, Pelonis introduced his first acoustical invention The Edge, a patented low frequency sound absorber which is considered to be the most effective device of its kind, with 95 -100% absorption from 400hz and below. The Edge received much critical acclaim by his peers during the Audio Engineering Society trade show that year. He has since created numerous additional innovative devices all for the purpose of furthering excellence in the sensory experience.
He is also involved in beta-testing prototype professional audio equipment, as well as the development of new products for such leading manufacturers as Tannoy's studio reference monitors, TC Electronics' digital processing devices, Bruel & Kjaer microphones and Manley Labs tube equipment.
A SOUND PHILOSOPHY
Step 1. Assessment:
In the initial meeting, the focus is directed at the client's specific needs, desires and goals. The facility requirements and project budget are clearly defined to create a strategy which will efficiently and effectively achieve the goals.
Information taken from the initial meeting is then skillfully analyzed and a proposal created, providing design and estimated construction costs.
The entire design, construction, equipment and wiring team is brought together to define a precise time schedule and budget. The emphasis is always placed on the performance of the facility to achieve the highest possible standards within the budget.
Step 2. Concept:
Conceptual plans are presented three-dimensionally and modified until the client has complete confidence in all aspects of the proposed facility.
Step 3. Architectural Design Rendering:
At this stage, the design team begins the process of creating documentation for the purpose of acquiring building permits and providing the construction team with the necessary details. Equipment lists and wiring documentation are closely coordinated between the technical and construction team.
Step 4. Construction:
Once all documentation is completed and permits acquired, construction begins.
Chris Pelonis is personally involved in all aspects of the above steps, and the team is well known throughout the industry for staying on budget even in the most challenging situations.
