Newcastle Parish Hall, Co Wicklow

This multi-purpose space is used by the Newcastle Paris school for theater, sports, classes and many other activities.





The Problem

Newcastle Parish Hall contacted Absolute Acoustics with need to address some acoustic issues. Speech intelligibility was extremely low. Teachers were showing signs of voice strain and badly needed a solution.

The Solution

We sent a team out to the hall to measure the reverb time in the space. As you could hear without even testing it, the space was overly reverberant and voice strain for teacher and class control was definitely an issue.
