Existing buildings are being put into new uses, and existing customer expectations are shifting rapidly. Acoustical management is often the last thing to be considered by the designers, often addressed only when there is a problem identified. Fortunately, the soundproofing industry is fast developing new aftermarket materials that can be applied in response to these issues. New England Soundproofing of Waltham, Massachusetts are experts at analyzing and addressing sound problems in the most unobtrusive way possible. The din was intolerable for customers in this busy tourist restaurant and it was hurting business. NES surface mounted acoustic panels on the vaulted ceiling, at regular intervals, and concealed them under custom designed assemblies consistent with the period decor. The wood assemblies themselves also work to break up the sound. The room looks exactly the same, but the customers no longer have to struggle to carry on a conversation.
