“I am fortunate that my professional work closely aligns with my personal interest in music.”

Nicole Cuff helps architects and engineers make informed project decisions regarding sound isolation, room acoustics, mechanical system noise control, and vibration isolation. She enjoys giving presentations to architects and owners about acoustics and sound isolation. She consults on a broad range of acoustic and vibration related projects, and has experience in all phases of these projects, including sound site surveys, feasibility studies, programming, design phases, specifications, construction inspections, and post-construction conformance testing. Representative services include: acoustics in critical spaces, such as at new and existing performing arts centers, worship spaces, large atriums, lecture halls, conference rooms, classrooms, and recording studios; speech privacy in offices; airborne and impact sound isolation for residences; noise and vibration control of mechanical equipment, including control into critical spaces within a building and exterior control into the community; and environmental noise code compliance studies. She has worked in the built environment for more than 15 years.

Have music, will travel

I am in an acoustic duo, The 94s, performing original music around the Boston area in local cafes and music festivals, and we released two albums, Undiscovered Country and Somerland. I love to travel as well, and my husband James and I went to Australia on our honeymoon.
