Hybridity and acoustics – watch and gain CPD points with this webinar now on demand

How has the role of sound changed in the post-pandemic world? What does the hybrid work model mean for acoustic design? An in-depth session exploring the future of acoustics with Woven Image.

Hybridity and acoustics – watch and gain CPD points with this webinar now on demand

The wake of the pandemic has made one thing abundantly clear: the ‘hybrid workplace’ model is here to stay.

Prioritising employee autonomy, flexibility, and work-life balance over strict routines and timekeeping is now a permanent fixture of our working landscape. Organisations transitioning to a permanent hybrid work arrangement now need to take heed and ensure that their new workspaces promote productivity, effective collaboration, and employee well-being.

The WELL Building Standard is a comprehensive performance-based framework for evaluating the impact of the built environment on human health and well-being – an evaluation system which becomes particularly relevant to this discussion. From an architectural standpoint, adhering to the WELL Building Standard is an effective approach to post-pandemic design. But what makes it so intriguing?

Achieving Acoustic Comfort in Hybrid Workplaces – A ‘WELL’ Perspective

WELL rates buildings according to several key measurements. One of the most interesting? Sound itself.
