Building Acoustics

The acoustic environment within a building can fundamentally impact on our perception of a building, and on how we interact within the space. Consideration of the acoustic design of a building ensures that the spaces within it are fit for purpose.

From commissioning surveys to technical design support, we consider all aspects of building acoustics engineering.

The acoustics team at Sweco will use their in-depth knowledge of Building Regulations, standards, guidelines and codes of practice, to help clients make informed decisions about the acoustic design performance standards for their building. We will support the client with best practice acoustic design, to achieve the most BREEAM objectives where desired.

Sweco will advise the client on how to deliver the optimal environment for each space by controlling the level of sound transmission from other parts of the building and from outdoors, controlling noise from mechanical services, and by providing an appropriate room acoustic environment (by controlling the amount of reverberation or echoes). Our acousticians will engage with the multi-disciplinary design team, to influence the mechanical, structural and architectural design of the building.

We are committed to being an approachable design partner, providing solutions tailored to meet the customer’s specific needs, while communicating design for acoustics in a straightforward and knowledgeable way.
