Commitment to acoustics sees Clarke Saunders Associates take third trade association role.
Acoustics specialist Clarke Saunders Associates is upholding a family and business tradition with the election of company director Dan Saunders to a key national association role. Dan has been appointed chair of the ANC, the Association of Noise Consultants, which represents the acoustics and noise professions across the UK.
He follows in the footsteps of his father Alan Saunders and colleague Ed Clarke - both fellow directors of Clarke Saunders Associates - in taking up the position.
Good acoustics can be a vital, yet often overlooked, element of successful interior design projects. Dan Saunders, chair of the ANC, the Association of Noise Consultants has over 15 years’ experience in acoustics consultancy with extensive knowledge across the UK and in Europe in a wide range of disciplines including environmental, architectural, planning and industrial acoustics projects. Commercial, residential and hotel accommodation have featured strongly in recent years and Dan tells us that “By planning ahead and considering key options, the soundscape of an environment can become a positive aspect that supports a feeling of comfort and wellbeing for clients.”
The results for this year's Acoustics awards were announced on Wednesday 27th June at the Hyatt in Birmingham and were presented by Hugh Hunt, Cambridge University Reader in Engineering Dynamics and Vibration.
