An overview of acoustic principles and ways in which sustainable design can be applied to acoustics to extend green design concepts.

Acoustics is a critical component in providing a comfortable listening environment for users and is recognized by several building rating systems for sustainability and health including LEED, WELL, Fitwel, and Passive House. We will overview various ways in which design can be applied to acoustics to extend green design concepts. We will discuss the ABCs of architectural acoustics and the importance of proper acoustic design to the comfort and wellness of occupants across different types of building uses. We will discuss design strategies to help achieve the acoustics requirements of various building rating systems throughout the design and construction process.

The course is taught by Kristin Murphy, Acentech. LEED AP BD+C. WELL AP. Kristen is an acoustician with over nine years of consulting experience specializing in architectural acoustics, mechanical systems noise and vibration control, and environmental noise for a wide range of project types. As both an acoustical consultant and expert in sustainability, she assists Acentech teams and clients on how to incorporate requirements from the LEED rating systems and provides guidance to advancing human health and wellness in buildings. With her architectural training, Kristen’s interest in sustainability and the built environment has been a core thread of her AEC industry experience.
