Healthcare, Lab, Surgery, and MRI Facilities
Room acoustics, sound and impact isolation, mechanical and MRI equipment noise and vibration, and environmental noise issues are all vital considerations for healthcare facility designers.
Reception, administration, office and consultation areas need to ensure speech privacy in accordance with HIPAA Oral Privacy regulations. Excess vibration must be controlled near vibration-sensitive equipment. The slightest vibration can render the data they provide unusable.
SSA has many years of experience working on healthcare and healthcare related projects. For example, we have provided architectural acoustic design solutions to patient areas to achieve required speech privacy.
We have taken vibration measurements and made modeling predictions to measure its impact on sensitive equipment. We’ve provided vibration mitigation solutions.
We have evaluated and provided recommendations on window/door assemblies, and wall/floor/ceiling combinations to reduce noise.
