Acentech recorded the new Guinness World Record for the loudest clap! Steven Wallace clapped a peak measurement of 117 dBA, breaking the previous world record of 113 dBA….
“I enjoy working on projects that help others. I try to see how my daily efforts will influence people down the road. Day to day, I solve problems ranging from interior room acoustics in concert halls and lecture spaces, to sound isolation between hospital exam rooms and office spaces, to environmental noise concerns from manufacturing plants and airport traffic. Each project offers unique opportunities to touch the lives of many in an invisible way.”
I first encountered Acentech when Ben Markham, Acentech’s Architectural Acoustics Group Director, gave a guest lecture in an architectural acoustics course at Cornell University. I was a physics student who had no business studying architecture, yet I found the link between physics and acoustics, and its applications, fascinating. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in physics, I joined Acentech as an intern, and later as a Consultant.

“No matter what you do, you first have to have a vision… to see your goal, to believe in it, have faith in it and chase it.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger
Without goals you can spin your wheels aimlessly, ending up in the exact spot you started in. If you have a vision, then you have something to strive towards. This mentality encourages and promotes success in every aspect of life.
