Hush has worked on many retail spaces for the landlord, tenant, or architect. Landlord issues typically involve a noise disturbance between tenants. We typically will review any available tenant separation wall drawings, perform a site visit and noise test, determine how sound is traveling between tenants, determine how loud typical tenant activities are in each space, investigate whether upgrades to tenant separation walls are warranted and feasible, and provide a recommendation regarding changes to the walls.
For tenants and architects we typically investigate a variety of issues such as acoustical privacy within the space and at adjacent tenants, ventilation system noise within the space, reverberation, and noise from rooftop units reaching the property line. In mixed-use buildings, one of the key issues is noise reaching residential uses within the building.
