We believe that successful acoustical design is the balance of creating solutions to meet both the client’s expectations and their budget. By working with our clients to understand the intended use of a space, we are able to determine the driving factor of the design. Our background in performing arts and recording facility design allows us to work on large and multifaceted projects – where complex design, advanced acoustical measurement and modeling techniques are crucial to the success of the project.

Through effective communication, we provide acoustical designs that are well aligned with the proposed use. By using advanced measurement and modeling techniques, we provide solutions based on accurate predictions to achieve the ultimate design solution, which also allows us to remain budget conscious. Criterion Acoustics is committed to designing tailored solutions on a per project basis. We avoid reusing standard designs as this leads to over-designing and increased cost. We remain current on new electro-acoustic solutions including active noise cancellation technology and digital signal processing for effective noise control. By considering both architectural and electro-acoustic solutions, we achieve better results with a well-rounded approach.
