Noise Control for Multifamily Dwellings

Presented By:
Jeffrey L. Fullerton


You will Learn:

  • The factors related to sound privacy (what people hear).
  • The differences between a resident’s sound privacy and the acoustical performance of the demising construction.
  • How acoustical isolation is quantified.
  • The acoustical requirements within the International Building Code.

This 10 minutes preview segment is taken from my live upcoming webinar on March 26, 2014. To begin, this segment will highlight the factors related to a resident’s sense of sound privacy from their neighbor. I will discuss how acoustical performance of demising constructions are quantitatively rated. The webinar will conclude with a discussion about the International Building Code requirements for multifamily developments.
