Acoustic Engineer

Good acoustics contributes to people’s enjoyment of a space; it has the power to affect how a place feels.

Each project is unique and I prioritise discussing the brief with the client and end users so that there is the best possible understanding of their aspirations.

I want everyone on the project team to appreciate the options, and for the client to be in a position to make informed decisions.  To get everyone on board, I use Auralization (the audio equivalent of visualization), to help illustrate the acoustic impact of possible design alternatives.  

Acoustics is just one aspect of a person's experience of a space. The visual impression is, in most cases, as important. Trying to find acoustic solutions that work in sympathy with the architect’s intended design, that are affordable, is a central part of my work.
