DAI Europe | Office Acoustics
Thursday, August 15th, 2013  | posted by

Respace Acoustics was contacted by DAI Europe in London for an acoustic solution in their meeting rooms, boardroom and manager offices.

DAI Europe were experiencing sound problems within the meeting, boardroom and managers offices. The sound reverberation time was too high causing uncomfortable echo and feedback.

 

Acoustic Rafts & Acoustic Wall Panels

 

Respace Acoustics achieved an acoustic solution for DAI Europe through the implementation of high performance acoustic products, which included, acoustic rafts, acoustic baffles and acoustic wall panels. These were installed into the office rooms to lower the reverberation time and echo so meetings could be held in a sound sonic environment.

 

Acoustic Baffles, Acoustic Wall Panels & Acoustic Rafts

 

The installation was a complete success, with another acoustic solution met and a happy client.

 

ACOUSTIC TREATMENTS WITH ECOPHON | TELEPRESENCE ACOUSTICS

PROJECT: BNP PARIBAS – CISCO TELEPRESENCE ACOUSTICS

 

We thought you might like to see some completion photos and details of recently undertaken acoustic treatments using acoustic wall and ceiling panels by manufacturer Ecophon. Please forgive the quality of some of the images, our installation team may well be the best in the UK, but their photography skills could do with some improvement :-) .

 

Early this year ReSpace was awarded EPIC partner contractor status by market leading acoustic product manufacturer Saint Gobain-Ecophon,  this will be the 1st in a number of blog posts which talks about the various projects we have undertaken in the past 12 months or so – using Ecophon sound absorbing wall and ceiling products; which we believe offer the best value for money versus acoustic performance and aesthetics.

 

We were contacted by French bank BNP Paribas to carry out the full TelePresence room build, which included full strip-out, new soundproof wall construction, joinery, plastering, decoration, flooring, full design and project management, and of course, special attention to room acoustics.

 

TelePresence Room Acoustics

Good acoustics are critical to ensuring the user experience when using the expensive TelePresence virtual global meeting equipment is maximised. This is why Cisco have strict guidelines to ensure the room is properly sound isolated but that the room has the optimum reverberation time. We achieved both of these criteria with aplomb, even if we do say so ourselves :-)
