There are many long-held acoustic design myths that perpetuate themselves in the design community. We intend to highlight many common design myths, reveal the reality of how these designs actually perform, and will provide modern practical solutions to replace the myths. We will cover topics that include: manufacturers’ data, sound isolation, mechanical noise, room acoustics, and environmental noise.
Steve Meszaros, M.Sc., P.Eng., Technical Director / Principal, RWDI Steve has been working as an acoustical consultant for over 20 years on a wide range of project types and sizes. He has worked primarily on institutional projects that include recreation, education, research, healthcare, and public/government buildings, but has experience with many other building types and locations around the world. The commonality between all of the projects is that good acoustics and noise control are integral to the function of the building and occupant comfort. Steve uses his technical expertise and experience to help design teams develop simple and practical solutions based on an understanding of the acoustic issues and the options available. His involvement typically starts in early design, where his influence can help avoid costly acoustic controls, and continues through tender and construction phases where implementation details are critical to building performance.
Anoushka Rajan, EIT, Acoustician, RWDI Anoushka has worked as an acoustician for over 4 years, and has experience in a variety of project types including architectural acoustical design, building systems noise control, and community noise control. Her project experience includes performing arts centers, sports and leisure complexes, secondary/post-secondary education facilities, and mixed-use, commercial, and residential developments. Anoushka uses her experience to help clients develop practical solutions from the early design stages through to construction, to ensure optimal building function and occupant comfort.
