Acoustical Consulting

Acoustical consulting, in some circles referred to as acoustical engineering, is the management of sound. Often, this is about mitigating unwanted reflections and increasing desirable ones (room acoustics). It may also be about containing or blocking out noise as it relates to adjacent spaces (architectural acoustics). In addition, mechanical and electrical systems noise control are common problems our acousticians solve.

If you need help with anything related to sound, vibration, or noise, AVANT ACOUSTICS has the experience and expertise to help! We’ve tackled everything from theatre acoustical consulting to flutter echo at conference centers to noisy MRI machines to open office sound issues – and everything in between!


AVANT ACOUSTICS has worked on transportation facilities for over 50 years. No one understands transit station and airport acoustics like we do! These large spaces typically have many noise sources to consider. People conversing, kids playing, noisy equipment, and background music are just some of the challenges we’ve encountered. Furthermore, passengers must be able to clearly understand the announcements–not to mention emergency notifications broadcast from a paging and mass notification system. AVANT ACOUSTICS understands that proper acoustics and noise control are critical to the proper functioning of transit facilities.

Lots of companies have open office spaces with limited or no partitions between staff members. While these configurations promote employee collaboration, they can also give rise to concerns about speech privacy and concentration. To achieve the ideal balance, you need an acoustical consultant to provide recommendations to the architect on room acoustics and possibly noise control. Besides open office environments, many workplaces have event spaces, boardrooms, conference rooms, and huddle spaces, each with their own unique acoustical needs. AVANT ACOUSTICS has handled it all, and we can’t wait to tackle your project!
