Acoustics in Offices and Meeting Rooms

In offices and meeting rooms , poor acoustics increases stress and reduces productivity due to high reverberant noise levels. Mistakes are also made due to poor communications because of bad acoustics.

Offices which have hard walls and ceilings are excellent reflectors of sound and contribute significantly to the general “din” in offices. Not only this does stop staff concentrating on their work but also reduces staff effectiveness in carrying out accurate tasks.

Over 70% of office workers say that a reduction in noise would increase their productivity. Low cost investment in acoustic improvements leads to greater productivity, less stress and lower employee turnover. Stress and distraction are frequently reported problems associated with noise levels and its effect on staff ability to concentrate.

A similar problem is encountered in meeting rooms. Increasingly meeting rooms have glass walls and there is limited space to apply acoustic treatment. One wall may also be used as a display screen for an overhead projector when doing presentations.

However, if you can email some photographs of the meeting room along with sizes , then our acoustic engineers can advise on the most effective and appropriate solution.
