How We Work With Clients
Many think the only time to engage the specialized services of an acoustical consultant is when designing a performing arts center. Architectural acoustics design, noise control, and vibration isolation, however, should be considered for projects of any type and size—from single room design to large, complex structures.
In fact, most of the design professionals with whom we work engage Acoustics By Design on a wide range of typical, every-day projects. We’re simply an extension of their team. They know that a small investment upfront helps ensure happy clients and prevents costly acoustical remediation on the back-end.
At Acoustics By Design, we work with architects, building owners, facilities directors, and technical directors and encourage our involvement in the design and pre-construction phases. With early involvement, we can integrate acoustics solutions into the construction drawings and shape environments and systems for optimum acoustical performance.
We also work with owners of existing structures to design solutions for acoustical enhancements or corrective measures for unacceptable levels of sound transmission, noise, and vibration. We test and analyze acoustics, and use those findings to develop the most effective and appropriate solutions.
Our acoustical consulting firm also includes an integrated team of consultants who work with architects, facility managers, and technical directors to design audio, lighting, and technical systems and integrate them with the native acoustical environment.
We work as an independent acoustical consulting firm. We don’t represent any brands, manufacturers, or contractors. We do not sell materials, technology, or products. We make independent, unbiased recommendations—and charge only for our expert analysis and consultation services. While we do not sell products, we can and do specify acoustical products and technology and solicit competitive bids from various vendors on behalf of our clients. We review bids, ensure compliance with specifications, and offer vendor selection recommendations based solely on your best interests.
