In addition to the standard building requirement of providing appropriate sound insulation and quiet mechanical services, Commercial developments often contain a number of acoustically complex areas, for example, AV conference rooms, meeting rooms, auditoria etc. These areas can have very exacting acoustic requirements for speech privacy, speech intelligibility and acoustic absorption/diffusion. Cass Allen are experienced in assessing such spaces using both statistical models of sound propagation and also state of the art 3D computer simulation.
