People want to spend time and money in developments where they feel comfortable. One of the easiest, yet most often overlooked ways that developers can achieve this aim is to pay attention to acoustics in a leisure setting.

It is not uncommon for the most successful leisure development to enlist the advice of an acoustic consultant in the earliest stages of their plans, to ensure that their leisure development provides exactly the right kind of atmosphere for future clients and customers.

Having the advice of an appropriately qualified acoustic consultant also helps to fulfil planning requirements, or satisfy the recommendations specified by ProPG : Gym Acoustics Guidance (GAG).

 Our clients to have ranged from small to medium sized projects, as well as larger sports and community projects, such as town halls; each has benefited from our expertise in acoustic design, creating customised, high-quality sports and community spaces for their residents. NOVA Acoustics Ltd have years of experience providing the highest quality acoustic consultancy to areas including the leisure sector.
