Acoustics, the science of manipulating and controlling sound within a space, is no longer a concern just for specialty facilities such as concert halls and theaters. In fact, managing ambient environmental factors (i.e. lighting, color, and sound) has become a critical element in designing spaces in which people can ultimately be more effective, where employees can work better, students can study better, and patients can heal faster.
Guidepost Solutions develops holistic acoustic and vibration recommendations, plans, and designs to meet the requirements of every type of facility. We offer architectural and room acoustics consulting, community noise remediation, mechanical systems noise and vibration control, structural noise and vibration, mechanical equipment vibration balance and alignment, and a full range of acoustical and vibration testing and monitoring capabilities. We advise on materials selection, construction techniques, and design details to control, mitigate, and enhance sound behavior and speech intelligibility.
Every acoustics project begins with an understanding of the existing conditions, so the first order of business is to conduct a baseline evaluation using proven practices and measurement equipment. Closely collaborating with our client, we leverage our industry and code knowledge to provide an analysis and ultimately an updated or new design backed by comprehensive documentation that will create an optimal environment that meets the project’s budget and serves the facility’s mission.
We can help you design the ideal acoustic system for your space including:
- Conference rooms
- Offices and professional spaces
- Concert halls
- Lobbies and public areas
- Sound isolation
- Speech privacy
- Noise control
- Vibration control
