Midbar Kodesh Temple in Henderson, NV turned to Isaac Building and Design’s Ze’ev Yacobovsky to design and build it’s new worship facility. The new facility was a long planned and hard fought for project that included a new 600 seat auditorium and an adjacent 300 seat meeting hall. Isaac contacted Kevin Potts based on referrals by local electrical contractor Helix Electric to design the new technology systems for the facility and provide advice on room acoustics. The project had a tight budget but the Temple had already been the victim of poor planning on a previous project and knew they needed to reach out to someone with experience in houses of worship.
The challenges presented were not daunting, but with the need for high quality sound and video as well as beautiful aesthetics Kevin and his team proceeded to design a discreet sound system that would meet the needs for many years. Midbar also wanted to utilize high definition video image magnification to bring the services closer to the people. High Definition projection and cameras were placed strategically in the facility and a simple to use video production system was put into place. The main auditorium is connected to the meeting hall and divided by acoustical air walls. Audio and video systems can operate together or separately depending on the services and events happening on a daily basis. Future expansion plans call for distributed audio and video into axillary rooms throughout this growing campus. Additional scope of work on this project included security, surveillance and access control systems.
