As cities become denser, so too the noise impacts of living and working nearby magnify. The operations of a 24/7 city encroach on the amenity of our urban environments daily. While regulation can go some way to manage the urban noise impacts of heavy traffic, noise from building plant and equipment or noisy neighbours in our urban environment, good design is also critical to the management of unwanted noise externally as well as within our building interiors, in co-working spaces, restaurants and between neighbouring apartments for example.
Candidates with significant industry experience are encouraged to apply. In addition to the below, other topics are also welcome.
Impacts of noise on human health and well-being
Amelioration and mitigation of noise impacts
Post-occupancy evaluation (PoE)
