Large venue acoustics focus for summit
Riyadh, February 14, 2011
A demonstration with architectural acoustics and the impact on the design of public address and emergency evacuation systems in a glass enclosed transportation center is set to feature at an upcoming acoustics forum in Riyadh.
Organised by International Quality & productivity center (IQPC), Acoustics in Construction Saudi Arabia forum will run from April 10 to 13 at Riyadh Marriott Hotel.
It is essential that new projects are not only fit-for-purpose in terms of end user noise tolerance and legislation, but they also provide cost-effective and high performance acoustic solutions to acoustic requirements, a statement said.
Contractors are implementing acoustic enhancement systems in venues of all types, both indoors and outdoors. These systems are a new tool that offer architects, acoustic consultants, and sound designers greater ability in providing a more acoustically enjoyable experience, it added.
The applications are equally varied, from concert halls, opera houses, and performing arts venues to houses of worship, sports arenas, sound stages, recording facilities, and even private homes.
Fred T Shen, president of Shen Milsom Wilke, will be discussing acoustics and electro acoustic interplay in large venue spaces at the event.
Shen will be joined by a host of leading international and regional acoustic engineers and architects.
The event will explore regulatory and contractual requirements as well as the latest innovations in materials and technologies and optimise planning and design. – TradeArabia News Service
