Acoustic Engineering for the Award-winning Markham Stouffville Hospital

Our work at Markham Stouffville Hospital demonstrates the power of audio simulation to empower our clients in their decision making – in this case, to control noise and create a stress-free atmosphere in the maternity ward. We focused on understanding how helicopter would sound through various glass types, ceilings, and structures. Ensuring the well-being of babies and mothers at the hospital was our top priority. We validated our work and design measuring via 15 channels of sound and vibration sensors throughout the hospital as a helicopter landed on the rooftop. This project helped to give better and faster care to the community.
