Our environment is constantly filled with sound. Sound is produced by person’s vocal cords, the thrum of an HVAC system, or a jackhammer against concrete. These vibrations travel through the air or other media (e.g., ceilings, floors, and walls) to the listener’s ears.
In many cases, we tend to ignore daily sounds, but when those sounds are unwanted or disruptive we consider them to be noise. Noise – even relatively low noise – is distracting. When sounds become noise in indoor environments, it can become problematic. It can negatively impact employee productivity and workplace satisfaction, limit how well students learn, and impact patient privacy in healthcare facilities, and overall worsen the experience and enjoyment inside any environment. Spaces that are designed with acoustics in mind can drastically improve the well-being of the building’s occupants.
