LT debates spending big to silence Reber Center noise
LA GRANGE – When theater groups at Lyons Township High School want to film their performances, they ditch their normal home – the school's Reber Center – for an off-site location to escape a constant whooshing noise that affects acoustics.
The ever-present hum caused by an air-handling unit in the school's auditorium was a main discussion point Tuesday when the school's board met with DLA Architects to discuss plans for a roughly $20 million renovation involving both campuses that is scheduled to start next summer.
Before backing $850,000 in air system improvements that the architects say would eliminate the noise, Board President Mark Pera wanted to hear the sound for himself. So after their meeting, board members and the architects took a short field trip to the Reber Center, where they listened to the noise that theater members say prevents their voices from projecting like they should.
