WEBINAR – Urban Acoustics
July 15, 2015 – 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join at 10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 12 pm Central, 1 pm Eastern
As with any issue of building performance, the acoustics of a mixed-use wood-frame structure can be designed to meet or far exceed minimal requirements. It is the responsibility of the design team to determine acoustical expectations for the project and meet them within the available budget. Through the use of case studies, this fast-paced, interactive session will explore how multi-story wood systems can be used to meet acoustical privacy goals. Discussion will focus on the detailing and construction of units, and how consideration of the construction process can help keep acoustical costs down. With the objective of providing implementable solutions, the session will include construction details and photos showing what has and hasn’t worked in actual buildings.
