RIBA Gulf & Geberit Seminar Series – Module 3 : Embedding Acoustics into Design

This webinar series is open to the entire Gulf (United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Sultanate of Oman) and is delivered as monthly one hour sessions with intervening gaps; allowing you time to reflect, revise and review. You can attend all modules in the series thus future-proofing your domain knowledge, or you can attend relevant modules only, if you need specific understanding of each topic.

This module will provide delegates with an expert level learning opportunity on the principles of acoustic design for acoustically-optimised buildings. The seminar will enable professionals to achieve better outcomes.

Topics covered:

· What causes noise and the importance of acoustics in design
· Acoustic regulations
· How to design with acoustics in mind
· Acoustic data
· Live Q&A session

This seminar is classified as ‘General Knowledge’ and will provide delegates with a higher level of expertise through sharing practical applied knowledge and will contribute to RIBA members' CPD points for the year.
