The Hard and Soft Side of Acoustics in the Workplace
FMANZ Auckland - join us for an informative & social networking event

Acoustic: noun, plural noun: acoustics
  1. the properties or qualities of a room or building that determine how sound is transmitted in it.
In any office or commercial building, a good acoustic environment means a good work environment and improved efficiency. The acoustic design of commercial buildings draws in a number of acoustic disciplines including room acoustics design of presentation spaces, speech intelligibility of open and closed offices, careful consideration of atria and transition spaces, sound system design and mechanical services noise control.

Focusing on the workplace, James Whitlock from Marshall Day Acoustics introduces us to the fundamentals of acoustics and sheds light on some common misconceptions. He'll also discuss acoustic priorities and explain how an acoustician thinks about a space. 
Pete Matatahi from Fuze Interiors will focus on acoustics as part of a holistic design approach to creating highly productive work spaces.

Join us for a relaxing event, surrounded by a somewhat different than usual facility at Giltrap Volkswagen, Grey Lynn. 

With thanks to Test & Tag and Giltrap Volkswagen for sponsoring this event.

He has two noisy kids and spends his weekends either at the track in his budget (and noisy) race car, or playing drums noisily (the irony of which isn't lost on him).
