Optimum sound
Optimum atmosphere
Minimise noise impact


We have specific experience of acoustic design in arenas, having worked on some of the world’s most popular music and entertainment venues. We combine expertise in acoustic design for arenas with our knowledge and experience of live music and events. By analysing the propagation of sound in our modelling software, we investigate different surfaces to provide an optimised layout for acoustic quality and use audible demonstrations to make informed design decisions.

We also provide venue noise impact services, measuring acoustic criteria and baseline, undertake environmental noise impact assessments and design facade sound insulation and noise emission.

We design and procure arena sound systems, based on computer modelling software to select the correct equipment for each area. We provide detailed specification, schedules and drawings that can be used to procure the works.
