AEC is adept at measuring, analyzing, predicting, and engineering all components of architectural acoustic design. The need for special attention to acoustical design is fundamental performing arts centers and recording studios. State, local, and federal building codes require that specific architectural acoustic standards be met for single and multi-family housing. Increasingly, the need for proper acoustical design has penetrated all building types, from schools and hospitals to offices and worship spaces.
