We provide pre- and post-planning advice to optimise
acoustic design of spaces
We deliver consultancy services for both new and existing buildings addressing all aspects of architectural acoustics. We provide the following expertise across commercial, residential, education and health sectors:
External Building Fabric specifications of glazed and non-glazed building elements to minimise noise ingress or egress;
Room acoustics investigations (in theatres, learning spaces, churches, recording studios, commercial spaces, offices);
Internal Building Fabric acoustic design review both for acoustic integrity and privacy and to meet building regulations requirements;
Sound Insulation Testing for Building Regulations.
We work together with planners, architects, designers and contractors. Following an initial consultation to ensure our understanding of the desired budget, character and finish of the project, we begin noise and vibration studies early on in the design process to assess site/space suitability, allowing any particular acoustic issues or concerns to be identified at the outset.
Following the planning permission stage, we help with detailed design including undertaking reviews of design proposals and tender returns to ensure ongoing alignment with the Client specification. We optimising design options to provide advice on the most practical and cost-effective solutions.acheive this by using our in-depth knowledge of regulations, construction methods and systems and the options of acoustic materials available in the current market.
During construction, we are able to provide site inspection monitoring as required and on completion, commissioning tests prior to handover. We welcome all communication throughout all stages of a project and can attend design team meetings as required.
