What are the stages of an acoustic treatment for office and open space?

The acoustic treatment of professional offices will be organized in 3 stages:

  1. A diagnostic phase
  2. A phase of recommendations
  3. A phase of works

Acoustic diagnosis of an open space

The acoustic treatment of this type of professional space will require a standardized result. Thus, it is necessary to reach a precise reverberation time.

Many parameters will influence this reverberation time:

  • The size and shape of the room
  • Decorative elements
  • Wall and ceiling structure
  • The number of noise emission points (including the number of people)

In this type of environment, the vocal frequencies will be the most important to treat to obtain a good sound comfort.

With our types of acoustic studies, you will have a complete diagnosis of reverberation and its behavior in your premises.

Acoustic recommendations for offices
