ACOUSTICAL DESIGN
ACOUSTICAL DESIGNNoise can affect both personnel and tools within the facility, and if projected in excess into the environment, the attitudes of the neighboring communities. Control of HVAC noise and the careful selection of relevant architectural details can improve communications, speech privacy, and the general condition of work environments, and reduce long-term work-related hearing damage, fatigue, and general annoyance. As regards environmental noise, quite frequently facilities are required to show proof of compliance with state or local environmental noise regulations. It is best to consider noise control during the design stage, rather than to have to apply—as a retrofit—potentially more costly noise control measures later.
