Architect: Alan Taylor Architectural Consultant

The Music & Performing Arts building at Shire Oak Academy, Walsall is a brand new facility housing a music room, performance / conference hall, practice rooms, a digital media room and offices. Hodgson & Hodgson carried out an architectural acoustic assessment to facilitate in the acoustic design of internal spaces within the building. The sound insulation performances of proposed separating walls and floors, internal noise levels and reverberation in teaching / practice areas were assessed to achieve the guidance criteria in BB’93. Recommendations were made to upgrade proposed masonry separating walls, the specification of a separating floor structure and required open areas in external facades where natural ventilation was provided. The required amount of absorptive treatment was recommended to control reverberation to a level appropriate for room designation.

With seven locations in the UK, Hodgson & Hodgson offers a total design, manufacture and installation service for acoustic building and industrial products. The company’s Acoustic Consultants provide advice on all aspects of architectural acoustics plus noise and vibration control solutions.
