The Ins And Outs Of Noise Standards In Construction

Understand how noise standards apply to multiple projects and how to achieve them.

The acoustical experience of an occupant is a subjective experience that varies significantly from person to person and is also greatly dependent on their activity and use of the space or environment. Acoustical conditions that might be suitable for one individual in an office space are often inappropriate and inadequate for someone in a residence. Standards help to define a minimum level of performance that is expected for various projects. This topic discusses how these standards apply to projects ranging from multifamily residential buildings to health care facilities to educational environments to defense and government facilities and even the outdoor environment, and how these standards apply to these projects and how to achieve them. We will also cover how these standards fall short of solving all acoustical concerns for every project, and how other voluntary ratings or guidelines can be useful to use for achieving acoustical conditions that benefit the occupants and programs that are planned.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to identify why these standards may not be the goal that satisfies most.
  • You will be able to explain how these standards relate to the selection and details of the constructions for the projects.
  • You will be able to discuss how to address these standards in the design of the projects for meeting compliance.
  • You will be able to describe the common standards that relate to the acoustical conditions required on various projects.
