Acoustic Designs

Poor acoustic design can blight a new development, resulting in complaints by occupiers, lack of productivity and extensive costs and delays while undertaking remedial works.

Without good acoustic design, buildings struggle to function to their intended purpose.  Whether it is excessive echo within an open atrium, lack of privacy between cellular offices or meeting rooms, noise from building services equipment or high levels of traffic noise break-in to the chairman’s office.  ACA Acoustics are able to undertake the required surveys, assessments and provide recommendations to achieve an acceptable solution.

However, by appointing ACA Acoustics at the early stages of the design you can be sure that these and other common acoustic problems are considered at the outset and the finished building is fit-for-purpose from the start. Designing for acoustics in architecture requires not only a high degree of technical acoustic knowledge but also good creative knowledge based on experience of similar situations. ACA Acoustics has extensive experience in architectural acoustic design over a wide variety of demanding and sensitive spaces, including:

  • Residential developments in accordance with The Building Regulations Approved Document E
  • Hospitals and healthcare developments including audiology testing rooms – HTM08:01
  • Commercial offices – BS8233 and British Council for Offices Specification
  • Video conference suites
  • Hotels – Approved Document E, BS8233 and client specification
  • Leisure developments including swimming pools, cinemas, fitness gyms and bowling alleys Licensed properties including bars, restaurants and night clubs
  • Arts and cultural venues
  • Industrial facilities including factories

"I want to share with you my appreciation for the honesty and sincerity you have shown throughout our work together.

It’s getting rarer these days that clients’ interests are put ahead of pressure to generate fees.

I would definitely recommend you to others."

Philip Catterall

"I have had the pleasure of using ACA Acoustics’ services on a high-end residential project in Vauxhall, London.

The commitment and proactiveness received from Rob Cant and his team was greatly appreciated on an extremely challenging and short time-framed project. This resulted in ACA Acoustics providing acoustic consultancy services on the current 51-storey commercial fit out project in Central London.

I would not hesitate with recommending their services as they are my preferred company for acoustic consultancy."

Joe Wu – T Clarke PLC

"I have been using ACA Acoustics during my employment at different companies since Rob set the business up in 2012. Rob and his team offer an excellent service and very competitive costs for carrying out acoustic sound surveys and reports. In the fast pace nature of the hospitality client field their fast turnaround is greatly valued and helps me to build a robust offering to my clients."

Craig Ballantyne – Spiritus Technical Services Limited

"We used Rob from ACA Acoustics and would highly recommend their services. The work was carried out to an extremely high standard, these guys obviously know their business.

There was some opposition to our project and those opposing employed an independent acoustic agent to try and discredit the report Rob had produced. However, the other report was thrown out and deemed totally inadequate and the Local Authority praised the report submitted by ACA Acoustics.

As I say, these guys know their stuff and are extremely competent and most professional."

Sanchia Ascroft – The Thatch Barn, Yelling

"ACA Acoustics’ practical understanding of the HVAC industry and professional yet common sense approach to finding the right solution for each project is the reason why I’d always choose to use them on my projects and recommend them to my clients."

Ed Fellerman – Chapman Ventilation Limited

"I’ve worked with Rob and ACA for a number of years on numerous projects, and their proactive approach and negotiation skills have helped my clients and I overcome various difficult challenging noise issues to secure tricky planning consents.

As a planning consultancy we have worked with various noise consultants and I have found ACA to be the most pragmatic and adept, going beyond simply undertaking noise calculations to help find solutions and fight our corner when needed."

Mark Shearman – Firstplan

"I use ACA Acoustics to assist with all our projects which require an acoustic assessment. They also provide the acoustic design for separating walls and floors to comply with The Building Regulations Approved Document E.

Their straightforward and practical advice complements the service I can offer to my clients and I highly recommend their service."
