Conduct acoustical field testing of the existing construction to identify the acoustical properties of the existing construction. Preconstruction Acoustical Field Testing can provide critical information needed for the appropriate acoustical design.
Develop preliminary construction specifications needed to meet the identified acoustical design goals of the renovated space
Submit a report including the results of the acoustical analysis and the construction specifications for review by the architect.
Review meeting to present and discuss the results of the report, address questions, and consider design modifications.
Provide technical review of design changes made after the completion of the Design Development Phase. The review will consider the effect proposed changes may have on the acoustical integrity of the construction.
Provide periodic construction site inspections to review construction methods as they relate to the acoustical criteria of the project.
Upon completion of construction, perform Field Sound Transmission Class/Noise Isolation Class (FSTC/NIC) testing, Noise Criteria (NC) testing, and Reverberation Time (RT60) testing to document the as-built acoustical environments of the new interior spaces and compare the results to the design criteria of the project.
Submit a final report of the final measured acoustical values and a comparison with the project design criteria to validate the acoustical performance of the facility.
Architectural acoustics tests are a sound investment when it comes to making sure the final construction has appropriate acoustical characteristics.
