Contact Info: Customer Service (

If there were one rule that would net the greatest acoustical yield in the built environment, it might well be, "Maintain ample separation between machines and occupied spaces." Not only mechanical noise, but plumbing noise, as well, can create a high degree of annoyance to occupants. This course provides design guidance to minimize mechanical and plumbing noise; it concludes with examples of built spaces that illustrate effective acoustic design. This course is part of a seven-part series that translates the quantitative and qualitative content of acoustics into the graphic language of architecture. Each section can be taken as an individual course.
