Synopsis

Since early March 2020, many people have been working from home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This has led to a lot of discussion around the role of the office space and if the workplace and commercial buildings will change as we know them.

The pandemic has forced the adoption of new ways of working. Organizations must reimagine their work and the role of offices in creating a safe, productive, and enjoyable workplace environment.

The indoor acoustic environment plays a vital role in achieving these goals. This webinar deep dives into office spaces and how thinking about optimal acoustics in the early stages of a workspace design can pay off in the end. Increased productivity, lower stress levels and higher employee satisfaction is just some of the benefits.

–  The fundamentals of sound and acoustics

– How noise can have a huge impact on our daily lives

– Why we should address acoustics in office environments

– Bad acoustic design vs. Good acoustic design

You will learn how to implement acoustic solutions without compromising aesthetics and how to transform noisy places into healthy, happy spaces where people can concentrate, collaborate and thrive.
