Event Description

Aaron Simmonds


With a movement toward human-centric office spaces, a need for acoustic control is important to allow occupants a usable space. Acoustically isolating a space provides privacy and protection from noise leakage. Controlling reverberation gives the occupants a space in which productivity and creativity can flourish. This CPD talks about the nature of noise and how to design to provide the clients with a high performing environment.


  • Learn how to design to provide clients with a high performing environment
  • Interactive Q&A post-presentation

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand how we perceive sound
  • The relationship of acoustic terminology and performance criteria onsite
  • Acoustic qualities of common acoustic products

Jason Quinn Podcast with Daniel Gudsell from Abodo Wood

Daniel Gudsell and building technologist Jason Quinn discuss thermal modelling and its potential to improve our living and working environment. Jason explains how thermal modelling works and why it is a must for all new construction projects.

Jason also explains the social concept of fuel poverty, and why this is important in a world with increasing income disparity.

Jason Quinn is an ex NASA engineer, now acting as a building scientist and Passive House certifier.

Jason explains the purpose of predictive thermal modelling for buildings. Predictive thermal modelling allows us to measure the thermal performance of a house before it is built.

Using this process we can effectively predict how comfortable houses and buildings will be.

Thermal modelling is a great design tool that allows for architects and designers to model their designs and make pre-construction changes if required.
