I have access to a building with a rather large main area. It is 545 square feet (ca. 51 m²), 20 foot tin ceiling, with brick as two walls and sheet rock as the other two.

How acoustically sound is that area?

It's probably not the best. I would expect problems at low frequencies from room modes and also midrange and higher frequencies from lively reflections. Not sure about the roof either - hopefully it doesn't vibrate and buzz.

Oh, it will. I speak from experience.

If you have floor speakers, try propping them up on cinder blocks. I think the air gap is what makes the difference, rather than leaving the speakers on the concrete floor. If that doesn't help, try throwing a rubber mat underneath the speakers, like what you'd use as a mouse pad.
