Ecore offers CEU on sound abatement
Lancaster, Pa. – Ecore now offers a Continuing Education Unit (CEU) that focuses on unwanted noise as a public health hazard. The CEU program, entitled “Second-hand Noise: Can Flooring Solve the Problem?” is designed to raise awareness of the impact of sound and how smart floor specifications can help stop sound at its source, the company said.
Ideal for architects, designers and owners of buildings and facilities in housing, healthcare, fitness and other environments, this course delves into the significant negative impact that noise has on public health, how sound moves through a building and how to specify the correct floor originated as the simplest and most cost-effective solution to the problem of unwanted noise generated in buildings, the company said.
“Excessive, unwanted noise will disturb everyone, but the health implications of noise are far greater than most of us realize,” said Bo Barber, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ecore. In fact, studies have shown that the negative effects of environmental noise are greater than exposure to toxins such as radon and lead, and are comparable to secondhand smoke. We have found that floor specifications are a sustainable solution to significantly reduce noise, and we have designed this CEU to provide insight into how making the right specifications can provide a quieter space and better well-being for people who work and live in noisy environments. . “
Upon completion of this CEU, attendees will understand how noise is a major public health concern and will be able to discuss current noise control approaches, how noise is perceived versus measured, how it moves through a building, and the role of floors in building. reducing noise in the built environment. Through a series of hands-on case studies, participants will be equipped with examples of how smart floor specifications can help create a superior acoustic environment, the company said.
This CEU is registered with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems and the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC). Upon completion of this program, all participants will have their credits reported to AIA & IDCEC.
