CONTROLLING NOISE IN CORPORATE ENVIRONMENTS

TO BALANCE COMMUNICATION AND PRIVACY

Corporate spaces have need for privacy as well as areas of clear communication. Achieving these goals is done through intelligent design and engineering.

The Challenge with Controlling Noise in Corporate Environments

Many times, poor acoustic design in a corporate environment goes unnoticed until after the space is built. Contemporary corporate environments present a variety of acoustic challenges, including rapid communication, reverberation from hard surfaces, lack of privacy or confidential spaces.

From call centers to conference rooms, from open office plans to private spaces, we design and use corporate environments to harness the magic that happens when we work together. If we can’t effectively communicate in these spaces, however, none of the other design elements matter.

Background noise can be distracting and stressful for employees, and can even transmit through the phone to the customers making communication difficult. Mechanical equipment noise is another frequent complaint, caused by vibrating HVAC and other building systems.

Unwanted noise can also flank over top of dropped ceiling tiles and into the adjacent space if the common walls are not constructed to the top of the existing ceiling or plenum.

Controlling noise in corporate environments requires creative solutions that span a wide range of parameters. To aide in solving these types of noise issues, the following key elements should be considered:

  • Purpose of the space
  • Population density
  • Noise transmission pathways
  • Privacy levels
  • Acceptable noise criterion levels
