Education and research projects often require a wide range of acoustical services so that issues of environmental noise (road, rail, air, industrial, construction etc.,), impacts upon neighbours, room acoustics, sound insulation, privacy and communication are all integrated into the design and development to meet project targets (for example BREEAM and BB93 criteria).
CSP Acoustics has extensive experience in all of these areas and recent and current consultancies include over 25 projects involving a wide range of different types of educational buildings – particularly Hub schools in Dundee, Perth and Kinross, Angus and Aberdeen.
Early stage design choices can reduce costs and increase performance standards if acoustical requirements are integrated into a collaborative, approach to development. CSP Acoustics will work with you to secure that early involvement and integration into project teams so that concept decisions can be influenced and detailed designs developed to meet acoustical targets. The ability to talk and discuss acoustical issues with a project team, using simple language and showing an understanding of the complex issues that confront other team members, has on numerous occasions, enabled us to help achieve solutions that are fully integrated with architectural and servicing designs and meet design and performance targets.
