Architects and engineers are coming together to discuss the new Building Bulletin 93, Acoustic Design of Schools, at Saint-Gobain’s Innovation Centre on 11 March.

The talk about acoustic design in schools will be held at Saint Gobain’s Innovation Centre at 95 Great Portland Street, London, on 11 March and speakers at the event will include, Shane Cryer, Concept Developer for Education at Ecophon, and Adrian James from AJA, an acoustics consultancy specialising in education.

Shane Cryer said: “With the recent updates to Building Bulletin 93, there  are a lot of changes to the Building Regulations which impact school acoustics and we are looking forward to clearing up some of the confusion surrounding the new performance targets at this event.”

The acoustic event will be a pre-launch for the new organisation, SPACES and the last official meeting of SCALA and SCEME.

SPACES is a merger of SCALA, an organisation of public sector architects, with SCEME, The Society of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, with Sarah Morris and Phil Zjalic at its head. The new organisation aims to establish collaboration between the two groups, to streamline the transfer of knowledge in order to achieve the highest possible standards in the development, design and management of public sector buildings.

SPACES will be launched at a Study Day being held at Birmingham City University on the 19 June, titled Working Together to achieve better SPACES, which is being sponsored by Ecophon.
