At dBx Acoustics, we are always looking for ways to support our clients and help them to achieve their goals. We’re pleased to present our ‘Consultant on Call’ package, which will allow you to tap into our expertise whenever you need to, for anything you need.
The idea is a simple one; you can buy a block of our time each month, from as little as one day, at a discount from our normal rate – and you can use that time however you like. We can make measurements, do calculations, review and advise on designs, or be on the end of the phone to answer those niggling questions for you – with two days a month, you could even have a basic noise survey. Unused hours can be rolled over, and we’ll always keep you informed as to how your time is being used.
For any work you need over and above your package, we’ll offer you a generous discount on our normal rates. You can either pass this on to your clients, or use the discount to offset your package costs. You may find that your clients cover the cost of the package while you continue to reap the benefits!
We’re confident that once you start working with us as your ‘in-house’ consultant, you’ll never look back – but we are offering a two-month no-obligation trial so that you can try the service for yourself before you commit.
As the workplace evolves, more and more people are working flexibly – whether that be late at night, from a sun terrace in Italy, or in a specially designed co-working space.
Clockwise provide the latter – contemporary private offices and shared workspace with flexible membership plans. With sites in Belfast, Edinburgh and Glasgow, we were delighted to be asked to work on their “new kid on the dock” at the iconic Edward Pavilion on Liverpool’s world-famous Albert Dock.
Appointed by international construction company Ardmac in 2018 and working alongside architects 74, we were asked to help with specifying partitions between the workspaces. Sound insulation is very important for bustling co-working spaces, helping to provide settings that support different activities, such as having private conversations, focused/individual work and collaborative sessions.
We assisted the partition specification and detailing to maintain sound insulation between different workspaces while ensuring we didn’t impact the fabric of the building, which is a 19th century warehouse with preserved original features, including cast iron columns, Victorian brickwork and barrel vaulted ceilings.
We also worked on building services noise control, particularly on the upper floor, which features air handling units sitting on plant decks suspended within the open plan office space.
A historic building on a historic site, we’re proud to have worked on this challenging and exciting project.
