Architectural Acoustics

With noise such a part of everyday life, building complicated sites in sensitive locations can make designing spaces extremely challenging. There is a delicate balance between promoting quality listening conditions, while keeping within the appropriate level of acoustic privacy.

We Find Balance

Noise Solutions provides a comprehensive solution for the architectural market. We draw upon our understanding of the acoustic properties of materials, construction techniques and architectural detailing, to design spaces that get the best out of the conditions of any interior environment.​

 Building Envelope Sound Installation 

With noise such a part of everyday life, building complicated sites in sensitive locations can make designing spaces extremely challenging. There is a delicate balance between promoting quality listening conditions, while keeping within the appropriate level of acoustic privacy.

We Stop Traffic

Noise Solutions uses innovative computer prediction techniques to determine the effects of internal or external noise breakout through the façade of a building. We advise on how the internal fabric of the building should be constructed to achieve the overall design criteria.​

Sound Insulation

Nowadays with adjacent areas in buildings being subject to continual assessments to ensure suitable levels of comfort for occupiers, sound insulation is an important factor in the architectural process.​

We Make Peace

Noise Solutions use bespoke software packages that utilise the latest prediction methods (including BS12354), to quantify noise transmissions between adjoining spaces. We take into account all sound paths — including direct, indirect and flanking.

 

We then evaluate the performance of individual partitions or separating constructions using proprietary applications such as Insul. Drawing on our internal resources we make detailed recommendations with regard to the construction and detailing of the separating and flanking elements, to ensure your project objectives are being met.

Room Acoustics

Whether it is a public, commercial or industrial building, Noise Solutions can advise on all aspects of room design, so that acoustic conditions are appropriate for the intended use.​

We Make Room

 Advising on room dimension specifications, shape and finishes, we make sure the required reverberation times and sound propagation characteristics are achieved. We also take speech intelligibility tests in rooms from an objective or subjective perspective, in accordance with the relevant standards. Finally, we prepare schedules that recommend the necessary changes to room finishes, absorption coefficients and appropriate constructional materials, so they are in keeping with sound insulation values.
