Seattle CEU / Acoustics: The Key to Happier and Healthier Workspaces
Time & Location
About the Event
Check in starts at 5:30pm. Presentation begins at 6:00pm. Appetizers and beverages provided courtesy of objekts.
This seminar aims to educate designers, architects and facility managers about the need to consider acoustics at the early stage of a project by providing information that will help them to convince their clients.
During the session, attendees will be exposed to a mix of typical background noises to experience, from an evolutionary perspective, the positive as well as negative effects on their mental health and physical well-being. This will serve as a basis to better work around those different sound exposures and thus create a working climate in which workers will feel more comfortable and closer to nature. Acoustics will no longer be an afterthought.
All secrets and traps on acoustic reports will be revealed. Finally, we present a measuring tool which allows the user to share acoustic measurements with his customers by calculating the reverberation and generating solutions.
The objectives of this session are manifold:
- Attendees will gain insights and a better understanding of the importance and impact of sound in a daily working environment. The instructor will share tips and tricks on how sound can be mastered and balanced with examples from different case studies.
- Additionally, attendees will be motivated to introduce more biophilic and biometric designs, recognizing how these can contribute to creating better acoustic treatments.
- Finally, attendees will be equipped to create a perfect ’sound frame’ for quiet and happier workspaces.
