Sure sounds like a ground loop. An isolation transformer should have solved it (as long as someone didn't try to tie the grounds together.)

Yup, probably just a ground loop. It happens in many bldgs and has a documented solution in the EmTech AVDH1 commissioning manual (see note #2 in the
attachment) . The EmTech recommended isolation transformer is an RDL TX-10B, but the TX-1A works as well and have an adjustable level control.

In 4 bldgs I've had hum issues with, 3 issues were solved with the transformer and the 4th was just a wiring error.
