The free, one-hour, AIA-accredited webinar is the second in a two-part course to help architects understand the basics of acoustic design and how engineers make acoustic decisions for a project. Architects will learn about sound decay and the principles of sound absorption in buildings, as well as techniques and materials used in a variety of building types. The presentation will also touch on OSHA requirements, ANSI standards, and FGI for healthcare facilities, and how each one can affect a building’s design.
