We have extensive experience of the acoustic design and testing of all styles of hotel from large multinational chains to independent boutique hotels.

Poor acoustic performance is one of the major complaints received by hotel operators from their guests. Whether it is poor insulation between bedrooms, music disturbance from the on-site entertainment facilities, or plant noise from the ventilation services.

We use our experience to ensure that each hotel is designed to minimise these issues and creates the right environment for guests to enjoy their stay.
