Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Payson Temple
The Payson Temple is the 146th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) and 15th in the state of Utah. When construction was completed in 2015, the temple became one of the largest built in recent years, at 96,630 sq. ft. on a 15-acre lot. Rooms within the temple’s interior include a baptistery, instruction rooms, a spacious celestial room, seven sealing rooms, including three large sealing rooms that each have the capacity for up to 70 guests.
Spectrum Engineers provided acoustic design services to meet the acoustical and noise control requirements as described in the LDS Temple Design Guidelines.
Houses of worship are unique projects to work on because they traditionally include more quiet rooms than a typical commercial setting. Acoustic separation is vital to the worship services that happen inside.Sarah Rollins, MS, INCE, DMC-D, XTP-E, Spectrum Engineers
