Affordable housing and care provider The Guinness Partnership added 30 Brock Street to their portfolio in December 2014. Their office space was spread across 5 floors. Due to the low mechanical noise levels (sub 30dBA), consultants AAD recommended the application of sound masking to increase the building’s noise floor to the recommended levels (circa 45dBA in open plan areas).
Acoustic Comfort were engaged by leading Design & Build firm Oktra to provide the sound masking element, including design, installation and commissioning of the LogiSon system.
Due to the low plenum (circa 150mm) we were required to provide an alternative speaker application to the standard 100mm diameter upward facing speakers. In this instance it was necessary to use the pyramid-style 4-directional speakers, which ensured an even and unobtrusive distribution of sound throughout the space, despite the conditions.
