Monterey Peninsula Airport District

Del Monte Elementary School:  Building Envelopes & Ventilation

The Monterey Peninsula Airport District hired Jones Payne as program manager to sound insulate Del Monte Elementary School in Monterey, California. Jones Payne worked with the Monterey Peninsula Unified District (District), providing program management, acoustic and architectural design, and specification and construction supervision services to reduce noise levels inside the school – in compliance with Monterey Regional Airport’s Part 150 Noise Compatibility Plan.
