MACH Acoustics Update February 2017
As we start 2017 in new offices, we wanted to update our friends and partners about some of the latest developments at MACH Acoustics.
Last year was our busiest year yet and saw us work on over 200 different projects, varying in size and scope. The business grew by 26% and we increased our team to over twenty staff, of which we’re happy to say a third are women.
In January, after ten years with us, Stefan Hannan was promoted to Director. Stefan’s vast acoustics experience covers all sectors, particularly educational, commercial, residential and mixed-use developments.
Ze, the founder of MACH Acoustics, is now focusing on new developments for the consultancy. These include: MACH Energy – thermal building analysis, MACH Testing – sound and air testing, SAP and SBEM assessments, detailed noise planning assessments and MACH Software – integrating acoustic artificial intelligence into BIM.
We are always proud to see our designs win industry and client awards. Recently the Acoustics & Noise Consultants Awards 2015 & 2016 recognised two of our school designs – the Wallscourt Farm Academy design for its ‘advanced understanding of the acoustics of open plan spaces’ and the cross laminated timber-built Steiner School in Frome for its excellent sound insulation.
The Keynsham Civic Centre – an open plan atrium, public library, retail and office space – won both a RIBA South West and a Sustainability award, an impressive achievement and an exciting project to be involved in.
Ze and all the team at MACH would like to thank our progressive clients for their business in 2016. We are always keen to hear from old friends and look forward to working together in the near future to design beautiful, creatively engineered buildings!
