The Autex Formal CPD Presentation – Is a module to ensure that key architectural skills are covered to provide a good understanding of the effects of sound in within the built environment. It directly relates to the areas of Design and Documentation within the National Competency Standards for Architecture.
The presentation focuses on providing a practical level of acoustic understanding and the fundamental acoustic challenges of interior space design and the impact hard reflective surfaces have on reverberation and background noise. It also defines how room geometry can affect overall acoustic performance and the deterioration of speech intelligibility.
The presentation also looks at how to accurately determine an effective and suitable acoustic treatment.
