Muskoka Sands Resort
Location: The Muskoka Region, Gravenhurst Ontario, Canada
Owner/Operator: Muskoka Sands Resort (now Taboo Resort, Golf And Conference Centre)
The Muskoka Sands Resort, built in 1926, is nestled on the shoreline of Lake Muskoka in the heart of Ontario’s cottage country, 90 minutes north of Toronto. It features a world-class resort, golf-course, spa, conference center, and hall for weddings and receptions.
HGC Engineering was engaged to support efforts by the resort to pre-qualify for a highly prized 4 diamond rating from the Canadian and American Automobile Associations (CAA/AAA).
Acoustical measurements and analysis were undertaken in order to develop design recommendations for upgrading inter-suite sound insulation, increasing impact isolation for floor/ceiling constructions and improving interior acoustics in the pool and dining areas.
