A retractable 360° performance sound system

Engineering Harmonics designed an innovative performance sound system to support amplified performances in a concert hall that had been originally designed specifically to support symphonic and chamber music.

EH also designed a new digital signage system, complete with a building-wide fibre-optic network and video infrastructure.


The Chan Centre is a striking landmark at the University of British Columbia that includes the acoustically, architecturally and aesthetically pristine Chan Shun Concert Hall.


Performance sound, video and communications systems consulting, design, tender, contract administration and commissioning.


By eliminating the acoustic anomalies associated with touring sound in a symphony hall the new systems have endowed the centre with a competitive advantage in attracting top-tier touring productions.


We retained Engineering Harmonics because we respect them and we respect the quality of their work—both the results they had obtained on their previous projects and the process they employed in achieving those results.

We have some very traditional teachers in our program who literally could not imagine how they were going to be able to teach without a blackboard and chalk. If we hadn’t had Andrew Kozak on board we never would have been able to get our teachers to understand how they can teach better with this technology.

Within an hour they knew where my knowledge stopped and where theirs had to start — and they were very, very gracious about it, even though they play on the world stage. They brought world-class knowledge and home-town service to the project.
