Building and Architectural Acoustics

Building and Architectural Acoustics Design

The wide range of external noise from activity such as traffic, people on the street, transportation, operational commercial sites and waste collection can adversely affect the domestic homes as well as commercial buildings. RCA Acoustics and Vibration can identify the weakest acoustical facades or built elements and provides expert guidance to control the external noise. We can help you to with sound planning for the noise in the Home Environment to achieve desired acoustical characteristics (e.g. sound Insulation for offices and commercial spaces for speech privacy and controlling the echo) of the internal spaces of a building.

We provide consultancy from the design and planning phase and the effectiveness of any proposed noise control can be analysed before any money is spent. The Acoustics and Vibration team at RCA Australia provides professional guidance and consultation for planning, detail designing, construction and compliance testing to suit a wide range of projects:

The Acoustics and Vibration team at RCA Australia provides professional guidance and consultation for planning, detail designing, construction and compliance testing to suit a wide range of projects:

  • Residential and Mixed Use Development.
  • Commercial Facilities.
  • Educational Facilities.
  • Major Shopping Centres.
  • Performing Arts Centres.
  • Places of Worship.
  • Theatres.
  • Sporting Complexes.
  • Airports.

 

Our reports are detailed and independent. We highlight any potential issue before the submission of the DA and consult with you until a feasible and reasonable solution is achieved.

We provide consultation to the amendment of planning documents and recommend mitigation measures to reduce excessive noise emissions that may be identified during the assessment. RCA Acoustics and Vibration are able to provide a full range of building acoustic services including:

Architectural and Building Acoustics to relevant standards.

  • Detailed acoustical design of internal rooms and spaces.
  • Specialist computer modelling to optimise acoustical performance of specialist spaces for speech and musical presentation.
  • Design advice ensuring building envelopes and internal partitions & walls achieve the required level of sound insulation.
  • Advice on noise mitigation, including specification of remedial treatments including glazing.
  • Preparation of performance specifications during the initial building design phase.
  • Testing of airborne and impact sound insulation within a building built element or façade.
  • Specifications of speech reinforcement, public address and masking sound systems.
  • Building Noise Control Design based on aircraft noise impact assessment.
  • Australian Building Code compliance including specification, project supervision, testing and certification requirements.
  • Acoustic design of buildings and advice on use materials for applications including: – Music Studios, Plant and Equipment, Office and Commercial Spaces, Retail Spaces.
  • LAB assessment and compliance studies and noise control design for clubs, hotels, open air concerts and other entertainment venues.
  • Noise and sound insulation for offices and commercial spaces including speech privacy assessment and sound planning.

Vibration Assessments.

  • Development of vibration isolation solutions for new buildings and structures.
  • Measurements of vibration impact on buildings and occupants.
  • Measurements and mitigation advice for vibration generating construction and demolition techniques.
  • Design of Tuned Mass Damper systems and / or specification.
