Acoustic conditions in healthcare buildings have been shown to have numerous important effects, from patient stress, privacy and dignity, to recovery time and re-admission. The right acoustic environment therefore provides the best setting for care and recovery.
Every healthcare building is bespoke and can include a variety of uses, each with their own acoustic limitations and requirements – from quiet recovery wards and operating theatres to MRI rooms and dynamic 24-hour uses such as A&E.
The requirements of HTM 08-01 “Acoustics” are varied and complex, requiring consideration of noise from outside and inside, and control of building services systems and reverberation.
auricl prescribes clear, straightforward acoustic solutions to address the requirements, integrating with the architectural, mechanical and specific hygiene constraints.
