Del Vino is a new Vineyard in Northport, NY that recently opened with much fanfare and praise for the design and level of construction detail. The grounds, exterior and interior are of the highest level. However, the interior was reverberant and bright, making it difficult to hear when crowds or live musicians were present. Rather than leaving this be, as most hospitality environments do, the owners sought a solution and were referred to Bri-Tech. With almost 30 years of experience, Bri-Tech has learned to bridge the gap between sound and aesthetic.

The challenge was to reduce the acoustic issues without deadening the room.
Bri-Tech selected a percentage of space to be covered by a specific type of sound panel. These panels were wrapped in a silk fabric provided by the Client and custom fit into the coffers to appear like they were always there. 3D modeled transitions were also designed and fabricated by Bri-Tech’s engineering shop to allow the recessed down light and sprinklers to fit properly.
During a post-installation interview, owner Frank Ghecite noted that the solution worked great and his clients have told him that they noticed a substantial difference; even with live music and a crowd you can still have a conversation.
