Noise is all around us in the city. On average, nearly 60,000 vehicles a day pass our property on the Wellington
Urban Motorway, and another 16,000 use Hobson Street and Tinakori Road. So acoustics were always going to be an important factor
in our design and planning.
Malcolm gave us practical advice and assessed our design to ensure we were aware of the materials and techniques that
would ensure our home would be very quiet, despite its extremely noisy environment. Then, using specialised software,
he modelled predicted sound-levels in bedrooms and living areas for our design, allowing us to build with confidence.
