For the second podcast in our year-long coverage of acoustics science and technology in commercial structures, we welcome acoustics expert, Gary Madaras, PhD, ASA, INCE, Assoc. AIA, and acoustics specialist at Rockfon, Chicago, and Shirley Wodynski, executive director of the Ceilings & Interior Systems Construction Association (CISCA), Oak Brook, IL (cisca.org).
In the podcast, we talk about an acoustics ROI calculator that was developed by a team that included Madaras.
The calculator uses some basic, easily acquired information about an office space and occupants to provide an estimated payback period, ROI, and annual savings. In addition, it will show you the impact of acoustical treatments on productivity, attendance, and employee retention. The tool is simple to use, provides a concise pdf report, and will help you make informed decisions about specifying acoustic treatments.
Listen to the podcast above, and find the calculator at cisca.org.
