Acoustics

Goal: to insulate a building's occupants from noise between units and noise from the building's surroundings.

Building acoustics have a direct affect on occupants- whether it's an educational facility, concert hall, or apartment building. Each building has it's unique requirements and these need to be met with careful planning and detail. Whether a building is designed to DIN 4109 or VDI 4100, increased sound protection can make a difference in sleep quality, especially in the urban environment.

Challenge: construction details very often neglect transmission of sound waves- properly done, it costs extra.
