Meet design requirements, mitigate noise intrusion and create beautiful sounding spaces that work.
Whether it’s clarity, quality, or privacy, sound impacts everyone. Patching Associates has worked on schools, healthcare facilities, offices, and performance spaces.
We work with Australian architects, developers, and building owners, to apply the science of sound to find practical, elegant and effective acoustic solutions that meet the design requirements of your project. Patching Associates recommendations are backed by over a century of combined experience in acoustics, and a full suite of specialized software and measurements tools. We are capable of assisting clients at the pre-design phase to proactively mitigate risk.
We support architects, developers, and building owners with the following services:
Sound is an integral part of creating spaces people value. From ensuring privacy and improving the clarity of communication, to mitigating unwanted noise intrusion, and improving the quality of the listening experience.
Patching Associates provide detailed analysis and clear recommendations for improving sound quality, and proactively addressing noise issues to avoid costly retrofits.
Theatres, and concert halls aren’t the only places that benefit from having acoustical sound spaces. Schools, Health facilities, and Offices, also benefit from having better acoustics, to improve communication, learning, and enjoyment. Including Patching Associates during the early stages of project planning will minimise the risk of complaints, and avoid expensive remediation, or renovation costs after construction.
Patching Associates offers a full suite of state-of-the-art 3D sound propagation modelling software, that gives us the ability to identify and eliminate issues long before construction has begun.
The construction phase, is just as important as the design phase. There can be a range of multiple companies, workers, and trades that are collaborating in the same space. Patching Associates ensures that the right steps are being made, so your acoustical design is not overlooked, or misunderstood.
Keeping front of mind that your project is creating a space that people value, Patching Associates’ role during this phase includes providing guidance on installation, modifications, or re-designs. Field reviews and site visits are key for this phase, as we can determine if the build will be per your design, as well as keeping it acoustically sound.
Once your project is completed, Patching Associates offers follow up site visits, and measurements to ensure your acoustical goal has been met. If you have an existing building in Brisbane or Australia that has an acoustical concern, we can create a plan that will meet your goals, as well as the rest of the stakeholders.
As independent consultants, Patching Associates can assist with collecting and evaluating multiple bids from noise control vendors, to ensure you are getting the most appropriate and cost-effective solutions for your project.
A dedicated project manager is assigned to every project and backed by standardized processes, giving us the ability to deliver on a tight timeline.
Having worked with Patching Associates before, we knew we could expect great service from them, and this time it was no different as they provided us with lots of technical support and were always available to answer our questions.
