Nov.7 | Seattle CEU | Optimized Acoustics in Buildings: The True Sound Experience

By: / October 16, 2017
Topics: CEUs / Seattle

Complying with the more stringent acoustic performance criteria in the standards, guidelines, and building rating systems has become more challenging in today’s predominantly larger and more open commercial interiors. This in partly due to trends towards more reflective floor materials, fewer walls, and an abundance of glass. Higher amounts of sound absorption are required to limit reverberation, increase speech intelligibility, and prevent widespread noise disturbances. This presentation will educate designers on achieving the required amount of noise control using high-performance, modular, acoustic ceilings.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the impact that noise in buildings has on our bodies, minds, behavior, and performance.
  • Review the overarching trends in acoustic standards, guidelines and rating systems.
  • Dispel the myths that have made acoustics the lowest scoring metric on building occupant surveys.
  • Discover the true strengths and weaknesses of ceilings and walls.
  • Develop a simple design approach to optimize acoustics.
