Educational Building Acoustics
Appropriate acoustic design of buildings is highly significant in facilities where speech and communication is important. Notably, the acoustic performance of schools and universities has been linked with the academic performance of their pupils.
Consequently, the Department of Education and Skills in Ireland has developed Technical Guidance Document TGD-021-5 which provides design guidance for the acoustic performance in new primary and post primary school buildings.
The UK Government has issued a more detailed guidance document Building Bulletin 93 . Our team of consultants have significant experience in acoustic design and sound testing of academic facilities.
