From considering the potential noise and vibration impact from environmental and mechanical sources and vibration isolation design for sensitive equipment, Aercoustics Engineering Limited has the capabilities and technology to provide full service acoustical engineering services for any research and development or laboratory facility.
At 285,000 square feet, the University of Waterloo Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum Nano Centre is one of the first buildings with many vibration sensitive labs within one building. Aercoustics was proud to contribute to the design of this building, meeting the highest scientific standards for vibration control.
Aercoustics employs an unparalleled understanding of acoustic and vibration design criteria to address issues that pose significant risk to the performance of the research equipment. Rail and other external vibration sources can have a significant impact on the feasibility, layout, and budget for labs with sensitive equipment such as MRIs, Electron Microscopes, and CT scanners. Aercoustics has the experience to effectively and efficiently mitigate the vibration impact. The Sick Kids Research and Learning Institute included all the vibration sensitive uses, and was also located adjacent to an Enwave energy centre – a major noise and vibration source.
