of sound within the Children's Neonatal Unit - Orlando, Florida. We
performed a noise study to define the existing sound within the
neonatal unit and common areas of the Arnold Palmer Children's
Hospital. We also determined the sound spectra of each piece of medical
equipment used within the rooms. Our data was used to develop a
sound absorption and masking system to make the area more acceptable to
the newborn babies and hospital staff.

noise tests within several video arcades to determine the sound
pressure levels and spectrum shape expected inside the arcade. We
then used the data to design wall and door systems with ample
transmission loss to contain the sound within the arcade and out of the
after renovation - Sarasota, Florida. Prior to
renovations and remodeling, the members of this clubhouse believed the
sound inside was acceptable during full capacity dining. After an
architectural redesign, the visually appealing space was considered
"loud" during events when the room was near maximum occupancy. It
was found that during renovations much of the sound absorptive surfaces
were removed. We measured the reverberation times within the
space and developed a model of the interior sound.
Recommendations were made to help reduce the build up of sound within
the room with minimal impact to the visually appealing aesthetics of
noisy for neighbors - Orange Springs, Florida. A
water bottling company installed a new cooling tower which emitted a
strong tone heard within the community. We recommended a
modification to its operational parameters. Hardware was
installed while we waited at the site. A noise reduction of
several decibels was realized the same day we began our investigation
of the problem as a result of our recommendations.

acoustical consultants mapped the sound levels inside of this Cairo
Georgia manufacturing facility and created sound level contours.
Sound level mapping of the 240,000 SQ FT manufacturing floor included
measuring sound from various saws, pneumatic tools and high capacity
the effect of a new store on nearby neighbors - Pasco, County
Florida. We measured the sound from a similar existing
automotive center as well as the current ambient sound levels near the
residents affected by the proposed new facility. We used the
data collected to simulate the proposed facility's sound at the
neighbor's homes and estimate its impact relative to the sound
currently heard from a
heavily traveled nearby roadway.
