The Importance of Acoustics in the Built Environment

Nov. 17, 2021

Historically, acoustics hasn’t been a high priority in buildings. But the fact is, windows, glass walls, marble floors, skylights, hard and reflective surfaces, and interior elements have the power to change the sound in a room.  

Every design choice impacts acoustic quality, and noise levels in a room can impact health, concentration and productivity—just ask anyone who’s worked in an open office before.
