Our unique approach not only differentiates us, it makes us better

The psychological and physiological response of humans to sound drives our acoustic design approach. Health, wellbeing and productivity of people needs to be at the forefront of our design . This ensures that we not only meet relevant international standards and local authority technical guidance documents but we strive to exceed their requirement for a minimum standard.

Acoustic design with people in mind

Noise is a serious issue in healthcare facilities. Noise levels as low as 75dB(A) can negatively impact health wellbeing and productivity. Noise affects patients and healthcare workers alike with issues ranging from hearing loss, high blood pressure and disruption to cognitive function which is vital for healthcare workers when performing complex medical tasks.
