I really didn't know what topic to put this in. Recently my school passed a bond for a multi-million dollar renovation of the existing buildings (one part is from the 1920s the other part is from the 1970s) The bond would include a new gym, new commons area (lobby), and a renovation of all existing classrooms. Phase I was the new gym, commons, and music room. Constrution began last year and we were told Phase One would be completed we we arrive next year. My choir and band teachers were all really exicited since they got to tell the planners what they wanted, they would get a new studio with new equipment, new soundproof pratice rooms the works. When we get back to school this year of course they aren't quite finished, the sprinkers and the acoustic pannels had to still be installed. So at the begining of the year we were basically in the same environment were were last year, big square rooms, now they were just 2x as big, in a different part of the building, and smelled like new car. Well about 2 weeks ago they installed the acoustic panels in the ceiling. They're the huge square slabs of some material that are hung from the ceiling, I'm sure someone knows what I'm talking about, well after they were install our superindendant and architect came along and said they didn't like how the panels looked, put them all flat so you can't see their backs. To make matters worse since they didn't install the sprinklers yet since the panels couldn't get wet the drilled holes IN the panels for the sprinklers so now they can't correct the acoustics. I'm sure glad THAT bond passed.
