Acoustical consulting, which is sometimes referred to as acoustical engineering, is the management of sound. There are several elements involved in this work, including room acoustics, architectural acoustics, and noise control. Avant Acoustics provides acoustical consulting services to a wide variety of clients, in an array of industries and spaces, across the United States and around the world.
is focused on mitigating unwanted sound reflections and maximizing desirable ones. Nearly every type of environment you can think of can benefit from the careful analysis and application of room acoustics. Some obvious examples of spaces where these services can be helpful are rehearsal spaces, auditoriums and houses of worship. Less obvious, but just as important, are places like train stations, airports, and even sports stadiums! If you’ve ever been in a busy airport
, you know how noisy it can be. You also know how vital it is to be able to hear announcements with information about flights arriving and departing, schedule changes, and emergencies. Avant Acoustics provides professional services to maximize the sounds you want to hear and minimize those you don’t.
Another area of acoustical consulting concerns architectural acoustics
. This is the science of blocking out or containing noise in related spaces. Think of the last time you visited the doctor’s office. If the office was designed in an acoustically-appropriate way, you should not have been able to hear anything going on in adjacent rooms. Likewise, people in those rooms should not be able to hear your private
conversation with your medical provider. Avant Acoustics works closely with each client to analyze the needs of their business, as well as the features and limitations of their spaces. This allows us to implement designs and mitigation strategies to ensure that visitors and staff hear only those things they are intended to hear.
Our noise control practice centers around containing or blocking unwanted noises so that they aren’t disruptive to others in the area. Mechanical and electrical systems, while vital to all operations, are often sources of unwanted noise. Likewise, the modern trend toward open and collaborative workspaces can also be a source of noise issues. Our experts in acoustical consulting will analyze your space to determine the source of unwanted noise, and come up with a mitigation plan to suit the needs of your space.
