Most people easily overlook the importance of Sound. For instance, too much sound may not only be uncomfortable, but can also be physically damaging. Similarly, too little sound, or even worse…bad sound, can be equally uncomfortable. Moreover, "bad" sound can make communication totally incomprehensible.
We work to identify and understand the client's needs related to the functional, physical and aesthetic requirements, as well as acoustical parameters so determined through acoustical analysis (either in-house or via the Acoustical Consultant).
According to the perceived need, we develop a recommended solution including, as required, architectural drawings and/or renderings, models and/or prototypes, and a plan for implementation including timetable and budget.
According to the approved plan, we work with the architects and contractors to ensure the accurate and timely installation of the recommended "solution"; to certify the performance of the completed installation; and to guarantee complete customer satisfaction.
The universal measurement describing acoustics in any architectural space is called Reverberation Time, (T) the time in seconds, during which initial sound is effectively dissipated by means of reflection and absorption. For any given architectural space, Reverberation Time is highly variable and dependant upon two factors:
- the size and shape of the space
- the absorbing properties of the space
Scientific research has determined optimal Reverberation Times for various room uses. While designers, architects and engineers target certain sound characteristics, additional acoustical insulation is generally required to meet specified objectives.
