We actually have a founding father. And it’s his sound vision that drives our company today, 54 years later. Vito V. Cerami started the first acoustical consulting firm in 1965, because he saw that buildings had noise and vibration problems that were not being addressed as an element of good design. Widely regarded as a pioneer of acoustical engineering, he created an industry that didn’t exist before and that is now compulsory in every building.
During its first two decades under the leadership of Mr. Cerami, Cerami & Associates helped advance many design and construction practices now commonly used for noise and vibration control in modern commercial and residential buildings.
Victoria Cerami took over the business when she was just 27 years old, owing to her father’s passing, and carries on his legacy today. She has built Cerami & Associates into the largest woman-owned firm working on building design projects globally, bridging acoustic engineering with technology consulting (AV, IT and Security) in the built environment. With over 100 acoustic designers and technology consultants in three offices, the firm brings a solid history and five decades of experience to the user experience.
