Architectural Acoustics

Architectural acoustics encompasses design of spaces, such as meeting rooms or concert venues, to optimise the internal acoustics for the required usage and the design of buildings to minimise noise breakout into other areas or into the environment.

Architectural Acoustics

We provide consultancy services on all aspects of architectural acoustics for new buildings or acoustic treatments to existing buildings.

Often it is necessary to isolate rooms from external noise sources. A sound insulation partition is only as strong as its weakest element, and so it is important that any partition is designed correctly. We can provide advice on the most effective solutions for improving sound insulation, including new build designs and additional treatments for renovations as required. We can also offer detailed advice on acoustic design of larger spaces that require a combination of treatments to create localised sound environments.

Sound generated at entertainment venues, generally in the form of live or amplified music, can easily become noise at the nearest noise sensitive receptors, and noise assessments are, therefore, often required as part of a licensing application for a venue or an event.Noise generated from events, such as music festivals, can be mitigated through design in terms of the layout of the event site but, more often than not, noise from such events is simply managed through limits that are imposed on the license.For larger events it may be necessary to have an environmental management plan similar to that required for larger construction projects and, if there are nearby noise sensitive receptors, then noise is likely to be a significant part of the plan.We offer acoustic consultancy services for licensing specific events or venues.
