Acoustic Testing - University of Leicester

NoiseAir was recently commissioned to undertake a programme of acoustic testing to assess the ambient noise within several newly constructed rooms at the University of Leicester. The rooms consisted of both newly built and refurbished lecture theatres, classrooms, meeting rooms, and a café.

Acoustic testing included ambient noise measurements to confirm Noise Ratings (NR) levels with respect to the mechanical ventilation system installed and also measurement of reverberation times.

Testing was undertaken within a number of rooms at the University to determine the cumulative ambient noise levels from external and mechanical noise sources, in order to ensure that all building services criteria were met to satisfaction.

Acoustic Testing & Recording Studio Design - University of Wales, Swansea

NoiseAir was recently commissioned by the University of Wales to undertake extensive acoustic testing for a proposed recording studios project within the existing campus building. The university offered three different spaces with recording studio capabilities and it was our brief to acoustically test each room for best suitability.

Initial testing was carried out at a surrogate ‘off-site’ professional studio (previously used by the client) in order to determine target acoustic parameters and criteria for the proposed new studio location within the university.

Acoustic testing undertaken included reverberation testing, ambient sound level testing and sound insulation testing. Detailed 3D acoustic modelling was also undertaken using cutting edge ODEON software, to accurately calculate and simulate interior acoustics of rooms as part of the design process.

Upon completion of on-site acoustic testing, a detailed report was written for our client which included survey methodology, test results and data analysis. From the analysis we were able to calculate the acoustic room design, acoustic specification and acoustic performance for the proposed studio rooms.
