Building & Architectural Acoustics Testing and Assessments
Unwanted noise can come from many places. It may be external such as aircraft, traffic or rail noise. It can be transmitted through walls and ceilings from neighbouring tenancies. Or it can come from internal services such as wastewater pipes or mechanical services such as air conditioning units.
Sometimes unwanted noise can even be from excessive reverberation (echo) within an area with a large amount of hard surfacing such a café, bar, community centre or indoor swimming pool area.
A habitable space requires acoustical considerations in the form of room finishes and furnishings, wall (vertical) and floor/ceiling ( horizontal) assemblies, interior geometry, window and door selection, speech privacy, exterior façade component selection, and control of noise from building systems.
We analyse sound transmission, reverberation, vibration, absorption, diffusion, reflection, and other architecturally related acoustic concerns and are usually retained by an owner, developer, architect, facilities directors and other engineers to help enhance the acoustical environment.
Our goal on every project is to achieve a healthy balance between the varying elements of acoustical design.
Through effective communication and reference to the technical provisions established by the Building Code of Austrailia (BCA), ISO and Australian Standards we are able to provide an acoustical design suitable for the planned use of the space.
We are able to provide testing and assessments of noise and acoustics in Melbourne, Victoria and New South Wales.
