Glasgow Arup SoundLab This site visit is to experience a sound demonstration of Arup SoundLab. The creation of SoundLab was to aid communication between Acoustic engineers and clients (could be musicians or developers) by creating demonstration of how the future sound would be within a given space. This tool has been used for a various project for a wide spectrum such as from performing art space to normal residential houses. This is regarded as one of the most powerful tool to demonstrate the sound rather than noise levels, decibel. The number of participant is limited to 7 people in order to experience the full effect of the SoundLab. The site is planned to visit on 23rd August 2018 between 16:00 and 18:00.
