Noise and Vibration Control in Wood-Frame Multi-Family Buildings

Scott Harvey, PE, INCE Bd. Cert., Phoenix Noise & Vibration

Learn to avoid common comfort-related pitfalls in wood-frame multi-family projects. Presented by an acoustics and vibration expert, this webinar will cover practical information related to code requirements, acoustical barriers, and high-performing, acoustically-rated wall and floor assemblies. Recommendations to avoid common pitfalls such as flanking paths will be presented along with example projects featuring real-world acoustical issues and solutions. Vibration and associated noise issues related to mechanical equipment will also be addressed, with an emphasis on how to avoid them through proper isolation design.

Founder and president of Phoenix Noise & Vibration, Scott Harvey has been working in the field of acoustics for 33 years. With a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering, he began his career with Bruel & Kjaer instruments as a field applications engineer. Since 1990, he has been devoted to the field of acoustical engineering as it applies to the building industry. He is board-certified by the Institute of Noise Control Engineers, a licensed professional engineer in Maryland and Virginia, and a member of the Acoustical Society of America, National Council of Acoustical Consultants, and National and Maryland Societies of Professional Engineers.
