Heritage Buildings and Performance Spaces

The acoustic design of public buildings such as courts, churches, theatres, meeting rooms and conference facilities is fundamental to ensuring clarity and intelligibility of speech and control of interference from external noise. For details of recent projects, click here .

Buildings, such as churches, chapels and auditoria are often challenging acoustically. Whilst the classical church may have long reverberation times which makes organ recitals and choral voice sound good they can often then struggle to achieve clarity and intelligibility of speech naturally. Good acoustic conditions in such spaces often needs defining to meet the needs of those using the space, but most commonly measures to improve speech intelligibility without compromising the main use of the space is an essential result that the acoustician can provide. This will benefit the congregation and the speaker whom is trying to reach their audience without straining their voice.
