It has been proven that acoustics can have an enormous impact on education, ether positively or negatively. For example, a study by the University of Salford found that acoustics can affect academic progress over a year even as much as 25%! As such it is incredibly important that educational facilities have the most effectively designed facilities possible.
When designing an effective learning environment, a major issue to take into account is sound. Sound is a vital tool for learning, students need to be able to make out audio clearly, whether when watching a talk or a presentation by a tutor, watching educational videos, or working together and planning as a team. Due to the large amount of students in one environment at a time, sound absorption is necessary for reducing the amount of noise within that space.
We offer a wide variety of sound absorption solutions for educational establishments. We have worked on projects improving the acoustical quality of iconic older buildings, as well as working on innovative new projects, creating educational facilities for the future. Previous educational projects include a variety of different well-respected organisations, including Point Blank Music School, Stafford University and SOAS, University of London.
