Arpeggio provides architects, engineers, and owners the expertise and guidance to make informed decisions about all areas of acoustics, audiovisual, and communications technology design. Whether our client’s concerns are the ever-changing technology systems, quality of acoustics within a space, noise mitigation measures, or technical infrastructure for growth and flexibility, Arpeggio draws upon over 120 years of combined practice to provide comprehensive, project-specific consultation. Our goal is to provide our clients with the expertise and guidance to make informed decisions about acoustic and technology issues impacting their project.
Whether the project is in the design stages or there is an existing noise or functional concern, we offer a full range of consulting services to address our client’s needs – acoustic design, computer modeling predictions, field measurements and monitoring, technology infrastructure, audiovisual and communications systems design, specification, and construction oversight.
Bringing Arpeggio into a project in the design phase can actually save a designer and owner money when compared to redesigning or retrofitting a building after construction. The earlier we are brought in on a project the easier it is for acoustic elements, technology infrastructure, and equipment locations to be integrated into the design. The input we provide can be as basic as space planning or building orientation—easy to implement in the design phase.
If you have specific questions about a project or acoustic issue, feel free to contact us directly.
We provide design services to optimize the architectural acoustics, noise control, and vibration issues of a project. We have the capability to develop complex 3D prediction models of acoustic environments for interior spaces and expansive outdoor areas for environmental noise.
From schematic design to construction documents, we serve as a resource for the designer to avoid potential acoustic issues and to develop effective recommendations.
As independent audiovisual and technology consultants, our experienced design capabilities complement our advanced knowledge of acoustics and offer clients a vendor-neutral, highly collaborative design process that leads to solutions balancing budget, procurement methods, technology trends, user experience, and project vision. We design audiovisual and communications systems for teaching and learning, large-scale presentation, conferencing, command control, live performance and production, collaboration, interactivity and experiential use, sound and video recording, and dynamic digital signage.
The sooner we are brought into a project the easier it is for the acoustic issues, technology infrastructure, and systems functionality to be addressed in a project.
We review existing architectural plans to provide recommendations with respect to acoustics and technology. Our review process utilizes our experience in the building industry to address potential acoustical issues in the architectural, mechanical, electrical, and structural plans. Arpeggio is often brought in to provide expert advice on whether to upgrade sound and communications systems or to improve the acoustic environment, two complementary domains that can work with or against each other.
We use high-quality, laboratory calibrated equipment to conduct acoustic measurements of air-borne sound and structure-borne vibrations. We go on-site to assess the acoustic issues within the context of their environment. This approach allows us to perform an informed analysis of the situation and provide specific recommendations for the situation.
In instances where the acoustics have become a legal issue, we draw on our knowledge and expertise in acoustics to provide expert testimony. We have experience serving as expert witnesses in depositions and in trials.
