HOW WE WORK
HOW WE WORK
• Dialog with the Client
• Define the Objectives required
• Design of volumes, shapes, surfaces, geometry and materials to meet Criteria and treatments to control the noise-vibration of Machinery
• Forecast the acoustic perform using room Model (commercial and own tools) and calculate all the parameters, sound insulation values and sound mapping
• On-site support to ensure the correct execution and final measurements to asses the project meets the goals.
It is an important process that allows us to anticipate and take the best solutions to develop your ideas. The wide variety of projects in which we have participated allows us to approach in a very diverse and effective ways to a new case, optimizing time and efforts.
In this process the key point is to understand and determine the uses to which the room will be designed, and to define the goals of the Acoustic Criterion.
Our designs always try to maximize the acoustics themselves, making the room an instrument in itself. That is why we study in great detail each surface, slopes or type of material of the internal surfaces, always with the aim of allowing a free acoustic expression of the space in opposition to the use of control mechanisms. In this sense, we always try not to use more absorption than the audience itself and let that the form generates the correct balance of reflections, the correct temporal distribution of energy.
Obviously, when rooms are born with the desire to be multifunctional and therefore the acoustic objectives must be different for each use, within the design process the appropriate adaptation mechanisms are defined to obtain this necessary variable acoustics.
As importance as the internal design, it is the definition of the enclosures of the building, enclosures that must guarantee the acoustic independence between the different spaces and with the exterior.
During this stage, the most advanced sound prediction techniques on the market are used, as well as our own tools and software, developed internally in the company’s own research and development program. These own methods have the advantage that they can be improved in each experience, adjusting their performance to that has been observed in real rooms.
The different acoustic parameters are calculated from the approach of several theoretical frameworks that allow to obtain a maximum information of the final behavior of the room.
Among other aspects, the spaces are analyzed with:
• Study of the ray tracing
• Calculation of acoustic parameters RT, Lat, Def, Heat, …
• Time distribution of energy.
Moreover, it is important to do final measures to assess that the result has achieved the initial goals of the project and the resulting acoustics achieve the higher standards.
