This ongoing project spans across 107 residences nestled within historic neighborhoods adjacent to O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois.
The Residential Sound Insulation Program (RSIP) is a program designed to reduce aircraft noise with sound insulation in the historical neighborhoods around O’Hare International Airport. The initiative was started by the city of Chicago.
Phase 17 includes 107 homes in the Norwood Park historical district. Work involves meticulous on-site measurements for each home prior to replacing the windows and doors. New installations are comprised of top-tier sound-insulation, designed to diminish external noise disturbances and elevate indoor comfort significantly.
In addition to the new windows and doors, work included the installation of new HVAC systems for homes not properly equipped.
Over the last 20 years more than 10,000 homes in the Chicago area have participated in the program.
