A-029 Acoustic Comfort: 1 PDH
The Acoustic Comfort online 1 PDH course is a part of the Building Design category of courses.
The acoustical environment of a workspace is typically given little or no attention during project planning and design. The functionality and aesthetics of the workspace are usually the primary focus of the designer. Too often overlooked, are the factors contributing to the productivity of employees occupying the workspace. Providing a comfortable environment for employees contributes significantly to their optimum performance and reduced absenteeism.
