Corporate Office Acoustics

Office acoustics have a direct correlation to worker productivity, with workplace studies citing noise as the most significant distraction. In recent years, office speech privacy issues have also become a greater concern. At ABD Engineering and Design, we consult with architects, interior designers, and facilities management professionals to create office acoustics and work environments that manage sound and control noise in open office, closed office, and mixed-use environments—supporting performance, productivity, and collaborative workplace objectives.

Open Office, Close Office & Mixed-Use Office Acoustics

Open office acoustics in a modern business setting.Our experience includes acoustical consultation and solutions for open, closed, and mixed-use office designs for new construction, remodeling, and retrofit projects. We also consult with office furniture industry leaders, testing and evaluating acoustical performance of new office systems, products and materials.

Our consultants use an integrated approach to design office acoustical solutions that considers architectural spaces— walls, floors, ceilings, finishing materials, furniture systems, and sound masking technology. Our office acoustical solutions consider workspace utilization and levels of desired employee and team interaction, as well as office speech privacy and confidentiality needs. We also analyze office acoustics to develop solutions to control, isolate, or mitigate noise from mechanical systems, office equipment, paging systems, and other sources.

For offices in the design phase, we employ sophisticated acoustical modeling software to predict and analyze prospective office acoustics. In offices that are already built, we use state-of-the-art acoustical measurement technology and predictive modeling to analyze existing office acoustics and evaluate alternative remedies for acoustical problems.
