Healthcare facilities of all types have always been important, but in 2020, they took on an unprecedented modern-day significance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In his presentation, Dr. Madaras will discuss the building blocks of optimized acoustics in healthcare facilities; sound absorptive ceilings, sound isolating barriers and designed background sound.
The Covid-19 pandemic shifted huge numbers of workers out of their offices and into remote working situations. Some are slowly returning and with that the office space is evolving.

With clear insights and case studies he will explain why acoustics is so important for us as human beings.
