Speaker: Thad Goodman, FCSI, CDT, CCPR, LEED Green Associate


Designing for sound transmission through wall partitions can be challenging. In addition, selecting a sound-rated assembly that also meets the fire-rated design can be difficult to coordinate. Common strategies to control sound between spaces include the use of resilient channels, double stud or staggered stud walls filled with insulation and damped gypsum panels. This course will identify best practices to achieve high STC wall assemblies by building type. Code compliant examples and solutions for sound- and fire-rated assemblies will be reviewed.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review acoustical concepts and terminology such as sound transmission class (STC), decibels, hertz, frequency, and NRC.
  2. Understand STC guidelines for healthcare, schools and multifamily.
  3. Identify how sound and fire ratings work together in various building types.
  4. Define fire and acoustical performance of code-approved wall assemblies by building type.

Learning Units will be provided: Yes (AIA LU/HSW)
