The practice provides acoustic consultancy from the inception of a project, through feasibility studies, outline and detailed design, to specification, tender, construction and commissioning. The advice provided can range from the design of lecture theatres to the location and silencing of air-conditioning plant, from the use of lightweight partitions between offices to the specification of a public address system – in short, anything that affects sound in the building.
We have a reputation for finding innovative solutions to difficult problems and unconventional spaces. However, to find workable solutions to these problems, we have to be involved early in the scheme design. The acoustic demands of any building can have a significant effect on its design, cost or even feasibility and we aim to establish the acoustic parameters as early as possible, and to integrate these with the designs of the architect and engineers.
