Community halls are valuable meeting places, especially in the rural county of Norfolk.
Such halls attract loyal and appreciative users, but sometimes the acoustics may need improvement. A recent example was the Community Hall in Lyng which lies 15 miles northwest of Norwich.
This hall had problems with reverberation in the foyer – an area seating 24 people and very popular for coffee mornings and social events.
The trustees of the hall called upon AJA to help out and our consultant George Moore visited the site. Having taken detailed measurements, his technical memorandum was the basis for choosing the acoustic panels and installing them, using a local builder.
As independent advisors, we are able to recommend panel designs and finishes. Often this is done in discussions with an architect.
Now that installation has been completed at the Lyng hall, Funding Officer Alan Chapman said, “Thank you for what you have done and also for sending the analysis of your results. The outcome is pleasing and in practical terms it really is noticeably better. We have received some positive feedback from users, which is always good news.”
