Webinar: Designing with Acoustics for a Better Working Environment in the Age of Open Space Planning

February 25, 2021 | 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EST

IES Albany Section

The IES Albany Section is proud to present our February 2021 virtual AIA Presentation, Designing with Acoustics for a Better Working Environment in the Age of Open Space Planning, presented by Taylor Rightmire, Area Vice President with Finelite, Inc.   

The design of tomorrow will increase the use of glass, concrete, exposed ceilings, and other hard surfaces into the built environment. These architectural elements not only deliver modern and desirable aesthetics, but also provide surfaces that are easily cleanable. The continued use of these non-sound absorbing elements will present us with acoustical challenges and will have direct impacts on occupants well-being and productivity.

This course will dive into modern design and the health impacts related to these decisions. We will also explore the ways architectural acoustics impact the interior environment and occupants. Lastly, we will learn how to properly identify and specify sound absorbing materials while exploring the types and benefits associated with luminaire integration.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) AIA CES or LU / HSW credit (Health Safety and Welfare).
