Luxurious buildings are always outfitted with the most high-end features which serve the building’s purpose. One of the most important considerations when designing a highly functioning building is to provide comfort for the occupants. Comfort in a built environment is affected by a number of different aspects which include personal factors, thermal comfort, indoor air quality, visual comfort, and acoustic comfort.
Acoustics is the key to success for many buildings and building spaces, and it shall be carefully considered for a space to function well. When acoustic considerations are applied to a building, not only it will increase a space’s functionality, but also add tremendous value to the building.
A proper acoustic insulation helps you to avoid any disturbance that comes from adjacent rooms. Acoustic insulation design relates to the ability of a building element or building structure (i.e. walls, floors, ceilings, glazing, assemblies, doors, etc.) to reduce sound and impact transmission through it. Geonoise provides calculation and recommendations of material and construction related with acoustic insulation.
Room acoustics describes how sound behaves in an enclosed space and therefore affects how sound is perceived in a room. Room Acoustics is an important aspect when speech and/or music is present in the room. The sound quality in the room is affected mainly by the geometry, volume, and materials used on the surfaces of a room. Geonoise provides room acoustic modelling and room acoustic design.
Building noise control is critical to ensure that the noise level in a space is sufficiently low so that the space can function as intended. Noises that are present inside buildings includes mechanical noise from HVAC system, plumbing noise and building service equipment. Geonoise provides calculation and treatment recommendations for MEP systems in buildings to ensure that the noise level is adequately controlled.
With a wide range of measurement equipment such as sound analyzer, tapping machine, omnidirectional sound source and acoustic camera, Geonoise is capable to perform a wide range of in-situ measurements which include sound insulation (airborne and impact), room acoustics (RT, STI, etc.), noise level (NC, RC, dBA, etc.), sound leakage detection with acoustic camera, and many more.
