    Language: English

There has been a lack of collaboration between acousticians and architects, as they frequently work independently of one another when it comes to addressing these demand concerns.

A holistic approach is necessary to create a fluid process between the acoustic engineering, design, architecture, and building construction fields. This approach will allow the different experts to collaboratively work together and create the best end results. But how do we ensure this will happen?

Projects always benefit from a holistic or ‘joined up’ design approach — having all the team members involved from an early stage means that any specific requirements can be built into the scheme and the design can reflect that.
