Dr. Gary Madaras, acoustic specialist, Rockfon, Chicago, pointed out that 90% of an organization’s operating costs are staff related. Madaras suggested adding even more sound absorption using carpeting/tiles on the floor and sound-absorbing/blocking workstation partitions to further attenuate distracting noises. “Layout of workstation partitions, if used, can also help to block direct lines of noise propagation between workstations or between communal areas and workstations. However, the use of workstation partitions is becoming a thing of the past,� he said. Sound control or the decision to not control it is very much part of the retail sales strategy, observed Dr. Gary Madaras of Rockfon, Chicago. “Often, food-and-beverage establishments consciously decide to have noisy spaces,� he continued. “The less people can talk, the more they drink and eat.

"Layout of workstation partitions, if used, can also help to block direct lines of noise propagation between workstations or between communal areas and workstations. However, the use of workstation partitions is becoming a thing of the past," he said. "It doesn't stop the noise; it just prevents people from hearing it, which can be equally effective," Chicago-based Rockfon's Dr. Gary Madaras said. He explained that loudspeakers are distributed throughout open-office areas and enclosed offices (especially those adjacent to conference rooms). Sound control or the decision to not control it is very much part of the retail sales strategy, observed Dr. Gary Madaras of Rockfon, Chicago. "Often, food-and-beverage establishments consciously decide to have noisy spaces," he continued.
