While some pundits and tech leaders claim the internet has destroyed privacy, the need for private conversations is greater than ever in public and commercial buildings ranging from healthcare to schools and offices. In this session, you’ll learn ways to design for acoustic privacy for healthcare provider/patient conversations in medical offices, supervisor/employee conversations in offices, and for private offices, conference rooms and collaboration spaces in schools and other facilities.
After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:
- List the key laws that govern privacy, and what impact they have on facility design
- Discuss research findings showing why quiet spaces are essential to occupant well-being in hospitals, schools, and offices.
- Articulate the amount of sound attenuation needed to ensure private conversations
- Describe door options that ensure acoustic privacy while meeting your design vision
