Religious Spaces


Religious and worship spaces

The acoustic environment of religious spaces is a critical aspect for worship, especially for services which involve music, non-amplified speech in large spaces, and isolation from unwanted outside noises. We work to provide a comfortable and appropriate noise environment by advising on interior finishes for optimal room acoustics and reduction of exterior noise both from adjacent spaces and system HVAC.

Typical Services

  • Review design drawings for acoustic privacy between spaces.
  • Review mechanical drawings for HVAC noise to meet often stringent design goals.
  • Review and recommend acoustic finishes to achieve the desired reverberation time.
  • Review special function areas for unique acoustical problems.
  • On site measurements for troubleshooting, post-construction compliance testing, or to benchmark an existing space.
