21st Century 3D Acoustics 1.5hrs

09:10 AM - 10:40 AM

This course discusses the difference between NRC and STC as well as absorption, diffusion, and reflection and how it relates to echo and reverberation and speech intelligibility in architectural spaces and the importance of using the 3D design concept to maximize the acoustical performance of their room.

Acoustic Door Assemblies and Their Role in Sound Control

10:50 AM - 11:50 AM

Sound control is a critical element to a building’s design. How an occupant will use the space must be understood in order to deliver a healthy and functional environment free of noise. Is speech privacy important? Is this a learning environment? Does the office open to a manufacturing floor? We all think of the walls, ceiling, and floor when discussing sound attenuation. But we must not overlook the importance of an acoustic-door assembly. Without the proper acoustic door, the sound-control goals in an acoustic plan may not be met. This course will review healthy sound levels and how to test and identify target STC ratings. We’ll discuss the elements of the acoustic-door assembly and how the assembly addresses fire-ratings and ADA compliance, contributes to LEED certification and green building, and provides security for classified files and electronic data.

Sound Control In Construction

12:30 PM - 01:30 PM

In this one-hour course, design professionals will gain practical knowledge of sound control and the many healthy and safety benefits it has for architects, builders, and occupants. It will discuss building code criteria and guidelines, including strategies to meet these requirements through various methods. By the end of this course, design professionals will be able to evaluate different sound control strategies and specify ones that best fit each project’s needs.
