We talk about state-of-art design when, in the preliminary phase of a project, aspects such as thermal, hydraulic, home automation mechanics and acoustic are evaluated, especially when it comes to designing a gym.
The acoustic evaluation of the environment is often neglected during the construction and only considered when complaints begin.
This is the case of this gym, whose dimensions are 12 m x 23 m and an average height of 6 m.
The owner of the gym contacted Eterno Ivica for an acoustic treatment, to remedy the sound reverberation and to the compaints from his customers.
After carrying out a phonometric survey on site and analyzing the results, it was necessary an intervention to reduce the high reverberation time by covering part of the ceiling, which proved to be the cause of reflections, with sound-absorbing material.
At the end of the works, further phonometric measurements were carried out, which demonstrated a significant reduction of reverberation time, a difference perceptible even without using tools.
The result was satisfactory both for the client and for the gym-goers, both from an acoustic and an aesthetic point of viewm a result that can be consulted in the relative news.
