Field acoustical tests are a part of most design projects, and are also performed in completed buildings. Common types of acoustical tests are:

  • Noise level measurements at property lines to verify compliance with municipal or state noise ordinance requirements
  • Field STC and IIC tests in residences to verify compliance with building code (IBC and IRC) requirements
  • Field STC tests of installed doors of secure conference rooms
  • NIC tests of installed operable walls and permanent meeting room walls of hotels
  • Highway, railroad, and aircraft noise tests on residential and hotel sites to be developed
  • Reverberation time tests in churches, gymnasiums, auditoria, and studios
  • Mechanical system noise tests in completed commercial spaces
  • Building commissioning
