Can TV is a long-time local access cable channel based out of Chicago. Originally broadcasting out of an old studio in an even older building, it recently acquired a new parcel of land in a medical district to build a brand-new studio from the ground up.

With new surroundings came new challenges. Medical helicopters flying over head, freight trains lumbering by on one set of tracks while El trains zip by on another meant that Threshold needed to secure sound isolation within the studio spaces. Sound isolation in the main TV studio was achieved by creating it as a large concrete vault inside of the building.

Additional work included the main office spaces, smaller studios for call-in shows, control rooms for TV production, as well as light advising on AV systems.
