Acoustics are critical in teaching environments and our acoustics team are experienced in the development of industry design standards and the implementation of acoustic measures.

Scotch has a wide experience of university and school building design and is able to provide technical advice and monitoring in conjunction with Client teams on projects of various scales.

The discipline imposed by term-time constraints and phased working are well understood by Scotch personnel.

Robust and cost-effective solutions need to work in tandem with sustainable design and our teams across each of our capabilities work together with Client and design teams to evaluate the most suitable options.

Design drivers include;

  • Acoustics in teaching spaces

  • Phased works
  • Constraints imposed by term times
