In this seminar, design professionals, general contractors, owners or facility managers will gain a thorough understanding of architectural acoustics (sometimes called “invisible architecture”).


Learning Objectives:

  • To learn about acoustics in the built environment (invisible architecture) and the effects on well-being, health, and safety including an overview on the Well Building Institute’s acoustical comfort recommendations.
  • To understand what sound is, how it behaves in an interior environment and how building materials are classified for their sound control capabilities.
  • To explore acoustical challenges in flexible space and learn how best to control sound including those acoustical challenges with operable partitions.
  • To find solutions through automation and intelligent acoustical design to achieve healthier, more comfortable and productive interior flexible spaces.
