While outdoor acoustics are generally concerned with environmental noise and vibration concerns, acoustics are also a critical element of proper design for outdoor performance and entertainment facilities.
Outdoor acoustics can pose unique challenges, whether the objective is to isolate noise and vibration, or create the proper acoustical environment for an entertainment venue. Our firm’s acoustical consultants have a wide range of experience in outdoor applications. In designing acoustics where actual outdoor site conditions cannot yet be measured, we use sophisticated acoustical design and modeling software to predict and analyze acoustics in outdoor environments. Three-dimensional acoustical modeling of outdoor environments let us analyze the impact of both topography and man-made and natural outdoor elements that may act as acoustic barriers or to redirect or change sound and vibration.
When a site is already built, we use state-of-the-art outdoor acoustics measurement technologies and predictive modeling to analyze existing outdoor acoustics and evaluate alternative remedies for acoustical issues.
Acoustics By Design also provides independent consulting in the design of audio-visual, lighting, and technical systems and their integration into outdoor acoustical environments.
As independent consultants in outdoor acoustics, we don’t represent any product manufacturers, suppliers, or other service providers. Accordingly, our clients are assured our recommendations are free from bias and focused only on the best solutions for the issues at hand.
