Acoustical Consultant - Vibration Consultant - Noise Control Engineer
Acoustics. Aural aesthetics. Increased productivity. Decreased distraction. Better sleep. Deeper understanding.
Don’t we all deserve this in our buildings?
Naturally we think of acoustics for an auditorium, a music space or a worship space. But how about when we cannot hear over loud background noise from traffic or HVAC equipment? How about when we cannot concentrate at work? When we hear our neighbors? Sleepless at the hospital?
Acoustics, noise control and vibration control are an integral part of the building design. Spaces are designed for people, and people are happier when they are comfortable. And owners are happier when their building is serving its purpose.
Soundscape Engineering LLC is an independent acoustics and vibrations consulting firm. We are not a product vendor. We provide unbiased assessment, design, and measurement services. We work with designers, builders, and owners to improve the soundscapes in which we work, live, and play.
