Client: Kier Eastern
Contract dates: July 2018 to present
CDC was contracted by Kier Eastern to provide specialist acoustic advisory services to their healthcare development, located in central St Albans, Hertfordshire. The existing healthcare facility was proposed to be relocated to the St Albans Civic Centre building, providing enhancements to the facilities offered within the medical centre. The development included a number of treatment rooms, consultancy rooms and a specialist VRA area and associated rooms. The VRA room requires high levels of acoustic performance in order to be effective. A large multi purpose space was also proposed for the development. CDC provided Acoustic consultancy services to the project including sound insulation advice, vibration advice, control of mechanical services noise and vibration, reverberation control and recommendations for compliant constructions. CDC worked closely with the wider design team, including architects, MEP, Structures and others, to ensure that the acoustic design was appropriate to the Clients operational aspirations for the project.
