Are you starting the design of a new school, hospital, cinema, office, shop, factory, road, apartment building, house or even a shed? Then budget, timing, legal aspects, location, materials, accessibility, safety and stability are all vital. An additional element which is often still overlooked, however, is acoustics. In today's world, you cannot afford to build, remodel or renovate without also offering a solution for sound absorption or sound insulation. Noise problems can sometimes expand too much to be ignored.
Industry professionals such as architects, planners, developers, builders and project managers cannot do without at least some basic knowledge of sound and how it behaves. The principles of airborne sound (sound waves traveling through the air) and impact sound (noise arising from the impact of an object on a wall, ceiling or floor) may be familiar to you, and you may even understand what an increase of 3 dB means when measuring sound. There is more to acoustics, however. If you want to provide your client with a comprehensive solution, then you'll need the advice of Cogent Acoustics, a highly competent acoustic engineer in Melbourne.
Browse the internet, and you'll find a few impressive names of consulting agencies to offer acoustic testing or advice in Melbourne. Perhaps you have contacted them and they have declined your project?The size of your project may be the reason.
