Overcoming challenges posed by the developing construction landscape with Hush Acoustics

  • 1 Nov 2017

As the world of construction continues to progress and evolve at a rate of knots, Hush Acoustics believe they can design soundproofing within the construction process that holds its own in the future.

With the company’s extensive knowledge of the specification process and construction industry, along with constantly researching and testing new acoustic products and systems, Hush Acoustics can ensure longevity in specifiers’ acoustic solutions.

Here’s what Hush Acoustics had to say about the matters at hand…

The growing interest in people wanting modern apartments raise challenges.

This is seeing hard flooring replacing carpets, walls making up separate rooms are making larger open spaces and a more minimalist approach to décor being favoured over ornaments and other interior furnishings.

The issues arise because of the vastly inferior acoustic capabilities of interiors, which results in higher levels of reverberation, impact noises and flanking transmission levels.

Deficiencies in construction and design of such residential buildings lead to these levels of noise occuring.

For specifiers, when designing future-proof acoustic solutions in build projects, it is vital they fully understand the principles of acoustics, such as the causes of impact, airborne and flanking transmission noise levels, and what acoustic products and systems can be used to reduce such noise sources.

Specifiers and all industry professionals must also embrace and adopt the new technologies available, integrating them into the project specifications and designs.

If specifiers can get to grips with the basic principles of acoustics, they can then design innovative acoustic solutions that embrace changing trends in society.

Creating effective acoustic solutions into early design concepts and incorporating the most suitable acoustic material mean specifiers can create soundproofing solutions that are effective in lessening reverberation and impact noise levels.

Embracing technological advancements can allow specifiers to safeguard their specifications in future build projects.

The introduction of BIM is a significant technological development, involving an increased collaborative and cohesive approach to designing buildings and enables a seamless transition of information through the project lifecycle.

For specifiers, BIM is pivotal in providing a more innovative approach to soundproofing solutions within build projects.

Specifiers also need to appreciate the rise of prefabrication constructions, where building components are constructed off-site and then engineered together on-site.

Developing acoustic solutions into early design prefabrication concepts safeguard their relevance and effectiveness in the construction process.

Managing Director of Hush Acoustics, Rob Crampton, says, “We have been working with specifiers and contractors for a long time now, and our acoustic solutions challenge industry norms. 

“We design acoustic products and systems that far exceed Building Regulations and are much more focused on modern lifestyles and future trends, rather than simply complying with Building Regulations.

“We work closely with specifiers and empower them with sound technical data and high quality acoustic products and systems.

“Our friendly and experienced team works closely with specifiers and contractors to develop acoustic solutions for all budgets and for all interior styles.

“We provide all product and system technical data to customers to give them the product knowledge they require for their build project, which not only helps them for that particular project but for similar projects in the future.”
