Architectural Acoustics:

Speech Intelligibility and Speech Privacy

Course Overview

Are you ready to transform your spaces into acoustic marvels? Join our one-hour Master Class in Building Acoustics, meticulously crafted for architects like you.

Speech Intelligibility: Discover the art of making every word resonate with crystal clarity. From lecture halls to boardrooms, we’ll equip you with the tools to ensure your messages are heard like celestial whispers.

Speech Privacy: Architects, listen closely! We’ll unravel the secrets to shielding confidential conversations. Whether it’s a hushed negotiation or a heartfelt confession, our solutions will cloak your spaces in acoustic mystique.

Acoustic Terminologies: Fear not the jargon! We’ll demystify terms like reverberation, Noise Reduction Coefficient, and Weighted Sound Reduction Index, empowering you to orchestrate places with excellent speech intelligibility and speech privacy.

Case Studies: Embark on a journey through successful projects in diverse environments like aquatic centres, stadiums, sports centres, airports, train stations, schools, community hubs, and healthcare sanctuaries. In addition, explore our patented soundproofing innovations.

This Megasorber 1 hour CPD Course is approved by the Australian Institute of Architects and this course arms you with the knowledge and tools to achieve superior acoustics for your bespoke projects.
