Nowadays many of us spend our working lives in large open offices – very large rooms with a lot a people. Over the years, this has been preferred over single person/few people offices for its obvious advantages on space saving and (in principle) easier communication between colleagues.
Such a work environment can function, but it requires a number of conditions to be under control, such as a shared understanding of behaviour, the physical layout of the area, the visual expression as well as basic parameters such as light, heat, ventilation – and of course, sound. The acoustic conditions are often far from optimal.
This means that office workers are disturbed in their work and the working environment is not optimal.
There are now a number of tools in the form of standards and guidelines, calculation programs etc. – all elements that support better planning and execution of the open office. At the same time, sustainability must also be taken into account.
Danish Sound Cluster invites you to an in-person seminar where the participants will meet a number of speakers who are deeply involved in the area, each in their field. Join in at the Royal Danish Academy to get inspired and updated on the latest research and developments on acoustics in open plan offices.
