The project includes a 22-storey residential tower. The study, separated into three parts, namely: Curtain wall, Building and Exterior acoustic compliance of sound levels of mechanical equipment. Each component consisted in defining their sound level objectives, taking into account the regulations, in modeling and simulating the sound environment in sensitive areas with the professional CadnaA software. Finally, mitigation solutions were sized as well as recommendations relating to each component.
The main challenge encountered was the scope of the project, i.e. the number of measurements required to establish the soundscape. In addition, to respect the conformity of the project, Atelier 7hz had to recommend the relocation of certain mechanical equipment.
