The Association of Noise Consultants has just announced its annual awards for the very best in the field of acoustics, and this year Adrian James Acoustics is delighted to have won two prestigious accolades.
Manchester's Crowne Plaza Hotel was the venue for the ceremony, rounding off a day devoted to conference meetings and presentations. At the evening dinner and awards ceremony broadcaster and former BBC Tomorrow's World presenter Maggie Philbin OBE handed out the trophies. Categories included Innovation, Good Acoustic Design and Workplace Acoustics and a number of international sponsors such as Ecophon, Bruel & Kjaer and Armourcoat Acoustic supported the event.
AJA won the Education Acoustics award for our work on the new music building at King's College School, Wimbledon. Consultants Ian Rees, Andy Thompson and Andrew Oldridge had masterminded this complex project, covering acoustic design, theatre consultancy and work on the recording suite at the school. The music school is a three-storey building housing classrooms, practice and rehearsal rooms and a recording suite. The jewel in the crown of this project is the extraordinary 200-seat concert hall, for which we designed a system of acoustically diffusing panels within the timber finishes of the sloping walls and roof.

Our second award was in the category of Workplace Acoustics. The acoustic design carried out at Fletton Quays was recognised with a Highly Commended acknowledgement. Mat Tuora and Andrew Oldridge worked on this urban regeneration project. Our brief was to create excellent acoustics within a Grade II listed former engine shed, now used as a office space.
