of sound either by instruments, loudspeakers, rooms or the hearing mechanism of
the individual is also considered to be noise. A relatively intense distortion

sounds cause distortion and thus pain.
intensities hampering communication no matter how pleasant they may be, could

offers the above services in the following acoustical fields:
Architectural Acoustics; Design of performing spaces, cinemas, recording and broadcasting studios, home theatres, churches etc.
Building Acoustics; Sound insulation from external sources and internal sources to secure spaces would not be affected by traffic or other environmental noise and at the same time, to secure that any activities in these spaces would not be affecting the surrounding area.
Room Acoustics; Design of comfortable acoustical environment including speech privacy and intelligibility.
Speech Intelligibility indicates the degree to which speech can be understood. With reference to room acoustics or sound systems, intelligibility denotes the extent to which listeners can identify words or phrases that are spoken by talkers and how room acoustics or sound system performance affect speech.
Noise Control; The means of reducing sound emissions such i.e. mechanical services noise and vibration control. Design of silencers for air moving equipment including air conditioning, ventilation systems, plant rooms, power generator rooms, etc.
Electroacoustics; Advice of appropriate loudspeakers types, numbers and positioning within a venue.
Environmental; Outdoor Sound Propagation prediction using Olive Tree Lab – Terrain™
