Comprehensive Acoustic Design Expertise—at Every Project Stage
Our consulting services cover all phases of your project, from pre-design and design to construction and post-opening. Whether you’re addressing the needs of a government facility, commercial building, performing arts center, educational facility, museum, or healthcare institution, we’ll ensure that the project meets its acoustic design potential.
Aural variables like reverberation time, sound reflection and loudness levels can greatly impact a space. In fact, poorly designed aural environments can create discomfort, diminish learning ability, and result in poor user experiences. We begin by evaluating the needs and function of a space, reviewing room volume and geometry, as well as the selection and placement of materials for walls, floors and ceilings. We then develop and analyze comprehensive models to determine the most appropriate configuration to address room requirements. This process allows us to deliver acoustic design recommendations that meet our exacting standards, control variables, and create the desired aural outcome in each space.
Unwanted sound and vibration can originate from both inside and outside of a building, compromising the acoustics of a space. We uncover ways to control sound from outside and from within by separating noise-generating equipment, activities or functions from each other within the building.
Noise and vibration from nearby mechanical, electrical and plumbing equipment diminish sensory experiences. Our consultants analyze sources such as fans and electrical devices, determine their impact, and develop recommendations to enhance the desired acoustical functionality of projects.
The integration of acoustic design with audio and video technology helps enhance spaces through a combination of natural and amplified sound. Our state-of-the-art audio and video system designs prioritize flexible, user-friendly control systems appropriate for your project. As a result, we’re able to seamlessly incorporate audio and video to support learning, discovery, and enjoyment for students, visitors, and audiences alike.
