Acoustics in Commercial Architecture: A Survey of Best Practices, Pitfalls, and Snake Oil (1LU | HSW)
Are you concerned that you may be under-designing or over-designing your project’s acoustics? Do you wonder if certain ‘acoustical’ products are a good value? Please join us for an accessible and candid discussion of fundamental acoustical design strategies for several of the most common building types. We will highlight architectural elements that warrant conservative acoustical design, and we will dispel some of the misunderstandings and marketing mystique that lead to overly expensive constructions.
- Discuss the architectural design elements necessary for minimizing distractions in open office areas.
