Recent research shows that ill people, such as patients in hospital, have a lower threshold for noise and suffer more adverse effects from noise than healthy people. Good acoustic design and quieter wards can help improve patient recovery times leading to a better patient experience and reduced treatment costs for the healthcare provider. Our services relating to healthcare projects include:

  • Design of room finishes and sound insulation for patient rooms and wards
  • Acoustic design of specialist areas such as operating theatres, consulting rooms, sensitive imaging equipment, lecture theatres and training areas
  • Baseline noise & vibration measurement to assist site selection
