Controlling and isolating sound is tricky — without the correct tools, the right people, and the proper design, the results can be disastrous. Participants in this course will review the needs for creating sound- isolated specialty spaces and discuss how much isolation is needed in varying circumstances. In addition, attendees will dive into the three tools of sound isolation — mass, absorption, and mechanical isolation and the role of each in the design and build process, while discussing the techniques of designing and constructing specialty spaces. This course will also outline the benefits of working as a team with other trades to provide the client the expertise they need to realize a well-designed and functional space.
