Building Acoustics, or Architectural Acoustics, design and testing is a key specialism of Dragonfly Acoustics. Our acoustic consultancy team offers a construction review service and can assist in the design of the acoustics of any building from the initial concept stage.
Room Acoustics is often overlooked as an area of acoustic design. Failing to consider room acoustics can have a huge impact on the suitability of a work or leisure space. Dragonfly Acoustics can offer both computer and physical modelling and we can predict the acoustics of internal spaces including acoustic issues relating to speech clarity and speech privacy.
Speech Privacy, or audibility, is not just a concept; it is a quantifiable feature of any room or open plan area. Dragonfly Acoustics can design the internal spaces within a development to ensure a high standard of speech privacy, or audibility, whichever is required.
School and Educational Acoustics
Research has shown that acoustic conditions within schools can have a profound impact on pupils' learning and staff performance. We have experience in interpreting the needs and requirements created by BB93 and in integrating the requirements of BB93 into music and performing arts spaces.
Sound Insulation Testing
We are experienced in sound insulation testing (often referred to as Sound Testing or Noise Testing) and on-site diagnosis of noise transmission problems. We can supply advice on remedial works if required, such as optimum construction of floating floors, dry lining of walls and many other specialist treatments..
