Controlling and Isolating Sound with Design and Construction

Controlling and Isolating Sound with Design and Construction

Controlling and isolating sound is tricky — without the correct tools, the right people, and the proper design, the results are often disastrous. Participants in this course will review the needs for creating sound isolated specialty spaces and discuss how much sound isolation is needed in varying circumstances. In addition, attendees will dive into the three tools of sound isolation - mass, absorption, and mechanical isolation and the role of each in the design and build process, while discussing the process of designing and constructing a specialty space. This course will also outline the benefits of working as a team with other trades to provide the client the expertise in bringing about a well-designed and functional space.

Learning objectives of this course:

  • Define the importance of controlling sound.
  • Define how much sound isolation is required in varying circumstances.
  • List the three tools: mass, absorption, and mechanical isolation and the role of each.
