Green buildings do many things well – but noise control and speech privacy can’t always be counted as part of that list. Some of the strategies that make green buildings green, result in poor acoustics.

The reason we design and operate buildings … is for people. We realize how important Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) is to communications, health and productivity. We have learned from various research studies, acoustics is still a key factor of dissatisfaction in interior environments.

  • This course is designed to accomplish four learning objectives: 
  • Why ‘Acoustic Comfort’ is an important element of indoor environmental quality in green buildings. 
  • How proper architectural/acoustic design practices can benefit owners and occupants in all building segments.
  • Learn about guidelines, standards, and Green Rating Systems that address acoustic design and performance. 
  • Review design practices that address acoustic needs in closed spaces, open plan spaces, exposed structures, and classrooms
