6 reasons to hire acoustic consultants for your project … at an early stage in its progress

Oscar Wilde Quote: I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

You trust your well-trained, compassionate family doctor. But would you be comfortable with a diagnostic hint of “It’s probably acid reflux, but it might be throat cancer”? Chances are, you’d be as unlikely to accept a “might be” as she would to let you leave her examining room before referring you to a specialist. At the very least, she’d send you off to a lab with blood test requisition in hand.

Just as one’s complex health issues may call for a diverse team of medical professionals to resolve, complex building or facility requirements—be they commercial, residential, public, or multi-purpose—necessitate teams of professionals including developers, architects, designers, and project managers—to ensure municipal and regulatory compliance as well as occupant comfort.

We believe that the best of these teams work with acoustic consultants whose specialized understanding of All Things Noise & Vibration enables them to deliver solutions before they become problems, thereby reducing costs and optimizing preventative measures. Consider making acoustic consultants integral members of your team because, as engineering specialists, they can:

  1. Take measures to ensure your project meets both legal stipulations and occupant needs.
  2. Not only conduct acoustic performance tests, but also comprehensively explain the significance of test results to other professionals involved in a given project.
  3. Formulate precise guidelines to help architectural teams fine-tune their work. These guidelines enable architects to coordinate acoustic performance with design concept as well as mechanical and electrical specifications.
  4. Model acoustic emissions to assess infrastructure or facilities project noise impact on local communities. Click here to learn more about identifying as well as mitigating potential noise or vibration issues.
  5. Translate Red Tape to English and liaise fluently with civil servants on your behalf.
  6. Inform construction projects with exceptional depth and breadth of knowledge regarding building frame materials and their unique acoustic challenges. BAP provides expert advice in the design and construction of wood-frame as well as concrete buildings across numerous sectors. Click here to learn more.
