This three-hour webinar will examine site assessment for noise sources and provide strategies to reduce noise intrusion including:
The webinar will provide opportunities for discussions on current issues facing homeowners, developers, designers, contractors and building officials such as increasing noise levels with mix-zoning developments and urban densification.
Dr. Maureen Connelly is the Director/Faculty of the British Columbia Institute of Technology Centre for Architectural Ecology and Faculty in the Building Science Graduate Programs at BCIT. Maureen’s research includes acoustical integration into whole building design and construction, quantification of the acoustical capacity of living architecture to enhancement of personal and shared soundscapes, sound transmission of building enclosures, and product development for noise control.
In addition to acoustic consultancy, Maureen currently supervises graduate students focused on material characteristics of absorption and scattering, sound transmission and building enclosure design, post-occupancy of Passive House in B.C., and the use of ambisonic and virtual reality in acoustic design.
