Solving the problem of noise pollution – considerations & solutions

Session Synopsis

More than just an nuisance, noise pollution has significant public health implications, including reduced cognitive performance, increased levels of cardiovascular disease, and reductions in quality of life.

And with urbanisation and population growth – this problem is sure to increase with serious implications on the way that we live, learn and work.

This session considers the ways that architects can help with the issue of noise pollution. Our speakers identify the scale of the problem, outline the regulations associated with noise abatement, and identify the various noise reduction solutions available and how to specify these.

In particular, they point out the ways that a new category of products, acoustic blinds and curtains, can help architects and specifiers solve the problem of noise pollution.

By the end of this session, you should be able to:

  • Outline the scale of the noise pollution problem in the urban Australian context.
  • Identify the negative health consequences associated with excessive environmental noise.
  • Define the phenomenon of ‘sound’ and explain how and why it decreases.
  • Identify the various noise reduction solutions available and evaluate each in terms of effectiveness.
  • Outline the regulations surrounding acoustics as they relate to architects and designers.
