Acoustics
One of the simplest ways to avoid creating noisy learning rooms is to
locate them far enough away from high noise sources such as mechanical
equipment, heavy vehicle traffic, music practice rooms, stadiums, or
other outdoor spaces that frequently used for noisy activities.
Learning rooms shall be designed to provide adequate acoustical
separation from all other interior and exterior noise sources. Meet or
exceed the following requirements:
• 50 STC Walls, ceilings, floors, movable or folding partitions
• 40 STC Doors and windows near high noise areas
• 28 STC Doors and windows near low noise areas
The use of movable or folding interior partitions should be avoided
because it adds significant cost to meet the 50 STC requirement.
Regardless of room size, location, or construction, provide:
• An overall noise level in empty rooms under NC 35
Insure this noise level will be met with the heating and air conditioning
system operating.
Wall, ceiling, and floor surfaces shall provide good acoustics. The design of
large classrooms (over 50 seats), auditoriums, and distance-learning
rooms requires special attention and the services of an acoustical
engineer. Provide:
• High-reflectance materials near the instructor that project sound to
the back of the room.
• Sound-absorbing materials on ceilings and on the upper levels of
walls in the rear.
• Target 0.75 reverberation time (acceptable range, 0.6 to 1.2)
Special design features such as angled walls and ceilings may be required
to insure sounds can be clearly heard without distortion in all parts of
the room. The acoustical engineer’s report shall be included in the
design development and construction document submittals. The report
shall include sound-transmission, noise level, and reverberation time
calculations and recommendations to improve acoustic performance.
Noise level:
Noise Level Within space should be considered
Noise emittance:
Limited internal noise emittance
Room to room:
- Room to Room acoustics should be minimized.
- Provide acoustic door seals to break out spaces, and between
adjoining teaching spaces.
- Acoustic treatment within walls and ceiling spaces to be incorporated
where required.
Room acoustics:
- Room reverberation time to be considered.
- Recommended mid frequency reverberation time of 0.6-0.8 seconds
Materials used for an acoustic treatment in lecture hall
Lecture halls and auditoriums tend to be large, impersonal rooms with
long walls often made of highly reflective materials such as concrete
block, gypsum board and tile; all of which are perfect incubators for long
trailing echoes. Acoustically, the goal is to allow audience members to
easily hear and understand the presenter. To accomplish this goal, you
need to properly balance sound absorption and sound reflection.
Materials and finishes:
• Use hard wearing, durable finishes.
• Install bump rail on side and rear walls.
Paint Finishes:
• Use hard wearing, low maintenance, low VOC paints.
• Normal base colors : brilliant white, napkin white
• Feature wall color to be determined through design
process.
