The evidence supporting the link between good acoustic learning environments, improved attainment and well-being is growing by the year. Yet there is still a continued debate about whether the minimal acoustic standards provided in current guidance is adequate with concerns about compliance with Building Control, Premises Regulations and the Equality Act in our schools, colleges and universities.
Come and join us for our half day conference where we will be exploring:
How we define a good acoustic space for teaching and learning
If the minimum standards set out in BB93 are adequate
If there is a need to provide separate standards for SEN
Why there are reduced performance requirements for refurbished spaces
How can we ensure compliance
Whether there is a need for a new holistic guidance note on acoustics standards for all educational establishments
The conference is aimed at designers, acousticians, constructors, premises managers, teachers, educational advisors and teachers of the deaf.
