Whether you use your space for office work, hospitality or recording, acoustics can have a bigger impact on you and your work than you might think.

If you think you may have acoustic issues, check out our blog on How to Fix Acoustic Problems In The Office. However, it is also important to identify where things are going wrong in your space, acoustic-wise.

Here is what you can do to pinpoint your acoustic problem…

Listen to The Complaints

Ease of communication is important in any space and has a significant effect on concentration, employee performance and general enjoyment. 

If the people in your spaces complain about hearing things from outside, picking up on conversations from other colleagues or having a lack of privacy from people hearing them, you probably have an acoustic problem. 

Where Is The Noise Coming From?

Acoustical problems usually stem either from how sound travels into or within your space. You may have a building acoustic issue if you receive complaints regarding sound coming from:

  • Outside to inside
  • Through floors
  • Between adjacent rooms
  • Within a space

If the problem is in regards to how noise and sound travels within a room, this indicates a room acoustic problem. This can cause issues such as:

  • Disturbances from colleagues’ at the other end of the room
  • People overhearing your conversations
  • Echoing within the space
  • Difficulty hearing each other, even in close proximity
