We add hospital(ity) to healthcare facilities

The control of noise and vibration is a significant acoustical challenge in today’s healthcare facilities and complex laboratory environments. When the acoustics of a space are unnoticeable, our design is a success.

With healthcare facilities, proper acoustical planning is a key design factor in providing reliable staff communication, protecting patient privacy, and reducing stress factors related to patient recovery.

In order to create the quiet, stable environments these facilities require, acoustic design must always be applied both internally and externally. High acoustical performance can be achieved through sound isolation between rooms, sound absorptive design materials, exterior envelope design, and strategies to isolate mechanical systems. We are experts in achieving the high levels of vibration control typically required in these types of facilities and have applied these solutions to both the building structure and the isolation of vibration-sensitive equipment.

Cerami is also well versed in the FGI Guidelines for Hospitals and Outpatient Facilities, which outlines specific acoustical criteria in terms of exterior noise, acoustical finishes, room noise levels, sound isolation performance, paging and call systems, and building vibration.

We are well versed in the proposed acoustical credits in LEED and WELL for Healthcare.
