Harout is Ramboll’s Senior Acoustics Engineer in the Middle East and responsible for noise and vibration control as part of the specialised services of Ramboll in the region with experience in working on a wide range of building acoustics, and environmental noise controls projects.
Harout shared his expertise to the Window & Façade magazine that was recently published. The article is about airborne sound transmission and specifically on flanking sound transmission through the façade junction.
In the article, Harout talks about the changing trends in buildings and the importance of acoustics and gives detailed insight into the commonly faced challenges and the possible solutions.
He concluded by saying” An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, Correcting a noise problem after construction usually costs much more than preventing one. The real costs don’t only include the material cost for the retrofitting but also loss of reputation, public confidence, and the time required for coordinating and retrofitting (especially if people already occupy the rooms).
