This presentation will provide architects and designers with a working knowledge of how current trends in acoustic design for classrooms can support improved learning environments for students, as well as increase the overall comfort and well-being of all occupants. Acoustics in classrooms should be a priority for designers as ambient background noise and intruding sounds can be a major distraction and nuisance for both students and educators. Elements to consider when addressing the acoustic performance of a classroom include controlling reverberation, background noise, and sound isolation. This presentation will offer specific instruction for architects when specifying materials within the classroom environment to ensure current standards are met, and acoustic performance is maximized.
This course focuses on the Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW) of classroom occupants through the examination of acoustical performance and solutions.
