Event Details

Please join us in the beautiful BUCHAN office as we explore the topic of 'Acoustics: Why We Feel what we Hear'

Have you ever walked into a space and thought, this just feels right? Have you ever thought about this in relation to Acoustics, and wondered why it sounded so good?

Sound impacts us in many unknown ways. It affects our wellness, everyday experience and influences building design. It can shape the characteristics of an environment and profoundly impact the way a space is experienced.

For this workshop, we have Lily Harkom, Acoustic Engineer from WSP Australia and Derek Thompson, Associate - Acoustics, also from WSP Australia offering invaluable insights and knowledge sharing of acoustic design principles, the role acoustics plans in architecture, why you need to bring an acoustic consultant on board early on in a project and the influence of sound on wellness.

The workshop will be interactive and provide practical understanding for you to learn some new valuable skills, while walking away with the confidence in contributing to create successful acoustic performance in your current and future projects.
