The acoustics in many schools and daycare centers is still unsatisfactory. The people concerned complain about the acoustics both in older and new buildings. But the construction experts concerned are also unhappy when acoustics budgets are “sacrificed” early on in order to save money. In addition to ignorance and uncertainty about good acoustics and how much it costs, the time needed for planning and installation also plays an important role. This information was systematically processed in a study. Suitable options can be selected from the range of acoustic systems available on the market and the respective implementation costs can be calculated. As a result, school boards and local authorities are in a position to assess all relevant aspects and reach a reliable decision. Construction measures can generally only be carried out during school vacations. Therefore, the time required to implement the measures is also included in the study, thus enabling realistic plans to be drawn up.
