Acoustics Health Practice
The MediZijn health clinic in Utrecht employs specialists, each with their own expertise. Physiotherapy, osteopathy, podiatry, dieticians, coaches and trainers. All with one goal: to make Utrecht healthy on the basis of science and alternative medicine. MediZijn therefore found it extremely annoying that the acoustics in the building were not good.
The long reverberation time hindered employees in doing their work and the situation was not ideal for patients either. Good acoustics balance speech intelligibility and speech privacy, ensure optimal concentration and reduce fatigue.
The building consists of various treatment and practice rooms and poor acoustics were experienced in almost all of them. We therefore carried out an acoustic measurement in each room and the reverberation time did indeed turn out to be too long.
Together with the customer, we decided to add acoustic ceiling elements and acoustic photo panels. In the rehearsal room with wooden equipment, the ceiling elements stand out very well because they are perfectly in line with the lighting.
The solutions fit very nicely into the interior.
