Acoustic design for education

Good acoustic design is required for environments where communication is critical for teaching and learning activities. Various types of spaces have different acoustic design requirements, including classrooms, music departments, performance spaces, theatres, multi-purpose halls and sports halls. Schools have regulatory acoustic performance requirements; further education facilities and university departments also require specialist acoustic design.

Sound Solution Consultants can deliver a complete service of design stage consultancy and pre-completion testing for developments within the education sector, including:

  • Acoustic design for schools to Building Bulletin 93 (BB93) performance criteria (including
    classrooms, music departments, multi-purpose halls, theatres and sports halls)
  • Acoustic design advice for music departments and performance spaces
  • Room Acoustics Computer Modelling for large spaces
  • Enhanced acoustic design for special educational needs
  • Building envelope and ventilation design guidance
  • BREEAM design-stage and pre-completion works for Hea and Pol credit compliance

What our clients say

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for all the extra help you have given me in dealing with my rather sensitive issue of noise transmission to my downstairs neighbour. It has been invaluable. In recognition, I have made a £50 donation to the charity: Action on Hearing Loss.

Jodi Riches - Client

Have worked with Sound Solution for the last 7 years and have found them to be very professional and excellent at their work. Always happy to provide me with advice pre and post purchasing new buildings and during development projects. We have worked on various scale of projects and so far have found nothing that phases them. The reports are well written, clear and easy to follow. A great asset to our extended team.

Sanjeev Bhamm, Pelham Associates

We are delighted to work with SCC Ltd in resolving the ever more complex requirements for careful acoustic design. Their knowledge coupled with a helpful approach assists us in delivering tailored solutions which fit within our design constraints.

Chris Parsons, Parsons Whittley

We have been working with Sound Solutions for a few years now, as they offer a professional and consistent service. They are always happy to respond to site-based questions and are quick to reply to emails and phone calls. It is reassuring to our clients that they provide both the specification prior to construction and test on completion.

Ben Harvey - Architect, Liam Russell Architects

We have worked with Mark and the team at Sound Solutions for many years and have always been very happy with their professional service and first-rate advice. I have personally recommended them to many other clients.
