Webinar: Armstrong Ceilings presents, Acoustical Design for Today’s Buildings

Wednesday May 20, 2020

12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

1 HSW

Zoom  Registration required

Course Description:  Poor architectural acoustics can negatively affect building occupants' concentration, comprehension, confidentiality, healing, and/or learning. By contrast, good sound qualities can add drama, vibrancy, and energy, enhancing the occupant experience.  Join us to explore the many options available today that help architects design for acoustics without compromising their design vision.

 Learning Objectives: At the end of this course, participants will be able to: 

• Analyze  and explore  the fundamental principles  related  to interior  acoustic design, and their  relationship  to green buildings and sustainable  design.

• Examine  the traditional  and new ceiling  system  options  available  to provide  interior  acoustic  treatments  that are  both visually  appealing as well as acoustically  appropriate  to the space  use. 

• Assess  the various  characteristics  of acoustical  ceilings  that can contribute  to green  and sustainable  building design. 

• Recognize  and identify  the acoustic  needs  of different  design applications and the attributes  to look  for, including contributions  to green building certification.
