Inland NW CEU | Acoustics, Flooring, and the Built Environment @ The Garland Theater
May 22 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

With trends in the market moving towards hard-surface flooring, multi-story buildings, glass walls and open office, noise has suddenly become a renewed concern for architects, designers, building managers, and property managers. This course provides background on how sound affects our health and well-being, how sound is measured and tested, and how flooring construction and flooring materials can help attenuate noise in multi-level buildings.
