Acoustics

room-acousticsFrom performing arts and educational buildings to houses of worship, corporate, and government facilities, K2’s expertise in the field of acoustics spans a wide range of applications and projects. Our acoustics consultants draw from their engineering and artistic backgrounds to help building owners, design teams and end-users provide spaces that are acoustically pleasing and appropriately quiet. In addition to standard design services, we can assist in meeting LEED or other high-performance building acoustics requirements, and also provide acoustical measurement services. Our design efforts entail customization of the acoustical environment, including recommendations for:

  • Architectural acoustics – room shaping, surface materials and finishes, speech privacy and sound masking
  • Environmental Noise – reducing the noise generated by industrial, recreational, or transportation activities
  • Noise Control – eliminating or reducing the noise generated from mechanical, electrical, or shop equipment and systems
  • Sound Isolation – spatial planning and construction techniques to eliminate, minimize or reduce sound transfer from one space to another
  • Vibration Isolation – eliminating or reducing vibrations from equipment or other sources that can be audible or felt within a space or building
