Acoustics in Educational Facilities – A ‘Building Quality Standards Handbook’ Perspective


BY

May 4th, 2023


Session Synopsis

As educational authorities around the world have recognised, poor acoustics have significant negative impacts on the functioning of schools and educational facilities. Including effects on cognitive functioning, potential infringement of Discrimination, Disability & OHS Acts, and more, these effects make it clear that acoustics are as vital a design consideration as ventilation, lighting, or energy use.

Here in Australia, the Department of Education and Training has developed a set of guidelines that acknowledge and address this issue. Contained in its ‘Building Quality Standards Handbook’ – a publication that deals with all aspects of school design – these regulations cover all aspects of acoustic design, from reverberation control to sound Isolation of walls, and more.

Titled Acoustics in Educational Facilities – A ‘Building Quality Standards Handbook’ Perspective, this session examines the requirements of this guide and outlines the best ways to achieve favourable acoustic outcomes in educational projects.
