The acoustics/audio/video design firm JaffeHolden announced that it has opened an office in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park. Heading up the new office is Jonathan Laney, who has held senior positions with Bridgewater Custom Sound, JaffeHolden, Talaske, and Shure Incorporated. The new office’s consulting business for performing-arts organizations will span the areas of acoustics, audio, and video; it will also provide services to clients in educational, commercial, and government markets. Among the firm’s many projects are the recently redesigned Alice Tully Hall in New York City; the Max M. Fisher Music Center in Detroit; Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth, Texas; and Cincinnati Music Hall in Ohio. Based in Norwalk, Connecticut and Santa Monica, California, the company was founded by Christopher Jaffe 40 years ago. JaffeHolden also owns the Metropolitan Technologies consulting firm, a Princeton-based company that designs technology infrastructure and network systems as well as security and telecommunications for clients in a wide range of business and nonprofit areas.
