Horstmann & Berger (Altensteig/D) were responsible for calculating the acoustics. Each of these three components (carpet, hole pattern, absorber) exerts a significant influence on the perceived and measured results of the implemented modern room acoustics and sound reflecting.
The three elements can be varied to adapt an acoustic raised floor to meet the specific requirements. Part of the campus project for Novartis Pharma AG in Basel, the modern Sanaa Building is a classic example of the way in which acoustic raised floor panels can be used.
This newly constructed 6-storey building complex comprises two longitudinal wings, each measuring 5.6 x 84 meters, and most of the rooms are used as modern offices. The longitudinal facades are completely made of glass and fair-faced concrete has been used for the walls and ceilings.
