If You Are Not Designing With Your Ears, You Are Doing it Wrong [Webinar]

Effective design cannot take place in a vacuum. The need for a comprehensive approach is growing as more organizations strategically shift focus away from building purely trendy spaces towards ultimately delivering immersive experiences for guests, prospective customers and team members.

Acoustics play a role in almost all occupied environments and building types. After all, there is a reason why so many organizations are now trying to find ways to better use the open spaces they haphazardly embraced as hip environments.

In addition to functionality, the acoustics of the space play an instrumental role in determining the overall experience. This is true whether you are building or retrofitting a corporate workspace or a themed attraction, an effective acoustic design often requires the involvement of multiple specialists capable of not only designing with their eyes, but their ears as well.



This webinar, led by Electrosonic’s Director of Design Consulting Rob Pourciau, takes a deep dive into the key considerations when designing with acoustics in mind. Sound control, building noise control, identifying places for critical listening, background noise levels and space adjacencies are all crucial areas of consideration.

Some key discussion points include:

• Addressing how sound affects human behavior in different environments, and its interrelationship with business performance.


• Gaining an understanding of how integrated acoustic solutions can help you realize ambient and sustainable soundscapes. For example, how the proper selection of interior and exterior materials can ultimately play a role in insulating, isolating and reflecting sounds.

• How existing ‘acoustically challenged’ spaces can use sound design solutions to transform listening comfort including ways to make the open office environment work or how to better select where to place certain activities in a new facility.
