Thought Leaders Series: Acoustic treatments of HVAC&R machinery in Australia, an investigation

About this event

Acoustic treatments aren’t as closely regulated in Australia as other areas of the construction industry. Especially where mechanical plant equipment screening is concerned.

In this webinar, we aim to challenge your understanding of external acoustic screening, provide you with guidance for future projects and introduce you to the ultimate solution for HVAC&R acoustic walling in Australia.

Who should attend the event?

This webinar is relevant for acoustic engineers, structural engineers, mechanical engineers, and builders such as Hutchinson Builders, ProBuild, LendLease, Coles, Woolworths, Aldi, etc.

You do not need to be an Engineers Australia member to attend.
