Building Acoustics Consultancy

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

Our team uses its in-depth knowledge of the building regulations, standards, guidelines and codes of practice to help clients make informed decisions about the acoustic design performance of their building. The team works with clients on concept and outline business case designs, spatial planning, and the technical design of buildings.

Unrivalled acoustics expertise

We advise our clients 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 the outdoors, controlling noise from mechanical services, and by providing an appropriate room acoustic environment by controlling the amount of reverberation and echoes.

Our acousticians will engage with the multi-disciplinary design team, to influence the mechanical, structural, and architectural design of the building. Our team can offer advice on the latest advancements in acoustic design, such as 3D room acoustic modelling (including electro-acoustics), residential overheating & acoustics ventilation assessment, and soundscape.

  • Residential buildings
