Commercial


HFP performs extensive work in the commercial sector.  We help businesses achieve speech privacy in open plan office and traditional office areas through better construction methods and/or sound masking systems. We ensure that boardrooms are isolated from intrusive noises that can disrupt important meetings, and we keep those meetings private from adjacent spaces.

Communicating over HVAC noise can make for uncomfortable meetings and tele- and videoconferences.  Yet this is an omnipresent challenge as many commercial spaces are built out on convertible floors.  HFP can review MEP drawings and influence the mechanical design to keep sensitive commercial meeting spaces from suffering loud acoustical background levels.

Common areas in commercial buildings also play an important role in business.  Atriums, food courts, and walkways should all provide for clear intelligible communication. One should not have to shout over a room’s reverberation to make his or her point clear and everyone needs to understand instructions given over a public address system in the case of an emergency. HFP can perform acoustical testing in a space, identify problem areas and make specific mitigation recommendations that lead to cost-effective solutions.
