    Webinar: Acoustics Essentials for the Collaborative Workspace (1 IDCEC hour)

    Level - Basic

    It is no secret that one of the most common trends in office design – open and collaborative workspaces – can leave much to be desired regarding acoustics. A scan of recent news articles not only yields numerous accounts of poor conditions, but several academic studies have also shown that acoustics rate poorly with other interior qualities thus contributing to reduced productivity and performance in the office.

    This presentation will cover the essentials of acoustics for office interior designers. Topics will include basic requirements for acoustics in offices, relevant design guidelines and standards, and common ratings for acoustic materials. Case studies will then be used to illustrate the process carried out to develop design solutions for acoustics on various projects.
