Green buildings do many things well - but noise control and speech privacy can’t always be counted as part of that list. Some of the strategies that make green buildings green, result in poor acoustics. The reason we design and operate buildings ... is for people. We realize how important Interior Environmental Quality is to communications, health and productivity. We have learned from various research studies, acoustics is still a key factor of dissatisfaction in interior environments
