Greater Baton Rouge Airport District

Greater Beach Grove Baptist Church:  Building Envelopes & Ventilation

The Greater Baton Rouge Airport District (District) hired Jones Payne to sound insulate Greater Beach Grove Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The project was part of the District’s Sound Reduction Program, which was created to reduce noise levels inside schools, churches and community centers impacted by airport operations at the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport.  

As project architect, Jones Payne provided architecture, design and construction administration services for the acoustical upgrades to the church, including its sanctuary, church offices, bible school, and Pastor’s residence. 

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Installed the following sound insulation materials:
    • New acoustically-rated windows and doors.
    • New ventilated roof insulation system.
    • New interior ventilation modifications.
  • Created custom designed, acoustical window units in the sanctuary, which incorporated specialty “art glass” into the units to preserve and enhance the contemplative feeling of the worship space.
