Consultancy services for sound and acoustics in buildings
Indoor acoustics are a critical parameter when considering a building's use value and comfort. We perform whole-building and whole-room acoustic measurements and calculations for all kinds of buildings.
FORCE Technology offers consultancy services in the field of acoustics and environmental acoustic measurements for all kinds of buildings, from small residential properties to large cultural buildings.
We have almost 80 years of experience in measuring and advising clients regarding noise, acoustics, and vibration.
Sound and acoustics consultancy for new construction and renovations
We offer architects, engineers, and contractors assessments and calculations of sound-related properties for whole buildings, parts of buildings, construction projects, and materials, both for new constructions and renovations.
We can support you in designing for sound and acoustics from the start of your construction project, thereby avoiding the need for subsequent improvements to the interior acoustics — as these are generally both expensive and difficult.
We can help you meet sound requirements to ensure that the indoor acoustics are satisfying for the building's users. For new residential properties, schools, and institutions, the Danish Building
Regulations (Bygningsreglementet in Danish) indicate specific required values for sound isolation, room acoustics, and noise from technical installations.
Once a building has been completed, we can take measurements of the building's acoustics to ensure that the building has achieved the desired acoustic properties and adheres to the sound-related provisions of the Danish Building Regulations.
If you have received complaints regarding the acoustic environment in existing buildings, we can take measurements and offer advice regarding remedial measures.
A broad approach to sound and acoustics in buildings
As a customer of FORCE Technology, you will benefit from our many years of expertise in the area of whole-building and whole-room acoustic measurements, including an extensive gamut of specialised services.
Verification measurements for acoustic isolation
The transmission of sound between residences ("neighbour noise"), classrooms, or offices can significantly reduce a building's use value. We can help you to ensure that you meet your desired or required level of sound isolation.
We perform verification measurements for acoustic isolation that account for airborne sound and floor impact sounds according to the DS/EN ISO 16283 series. We use a speaker as a sound source when measuring airborne sound isolation, while we measure floor impact sounds with a standardised impact machine.
Whole-room acoustics and acoustic management for spaces in buildings
Whole-room acoustics, or acoustic management for spaces, is highly significant to every room's use. In some rooms, minute adjustments may be necessary to make it possible to hear and understand music or speech. In others, the noise level from activities and loud voices may need to be minimised.
We perform acoustic measurements of spaces, including reverberation time measurements, according to the D/EN ISO 3382 series.
Noise from facilities
Noise from facilities like ventilation systems, heat pumps, or plumbing fixtures affects the experience of comfort in a building.
We perform noise measurements for all types of building facilities, in accordance with (e.g.) the DS/EN ISO 10052 standard, used for verification measurements as set out in the Danish Building Regulations.
Indoor acoustics ought to be regarded on the same level as other building characteristics during building planning and design.
We would be happy to participate in an early design overview to help you avoid errors in acoustic design. In doing so, you will benefit from an experience-based assessment of acoustic solutions, as well as calculations of acoustic isolation and the acoustic characteristics of the space, in accordance with (e.g.) the DS/EN ISO 12354 series. We run our calculations using special software for building and space acoustics, which simulate acoustic conditions in buildings.
