When it comes to the workplace, the employees need peaceful surroundings that should be free from any distractions and background sounds in order to work productively and effectively. Acoustics play a great role in maintaining the sound quality of a space. Both a setting that is too quiet and one that is too loud are unsuitable for working. So, to create and maintain sound quality different kinds of acoustic materials are used which can be used on walls, ceiling, between walls and even on floor. These acoustic panels have the properties of absorption, reflection and dampening of sound, creating the required acoustic comfort a space demands. Because, unwanted sound is always a hindrance and the acoustic panels makes it easier for people in a room or a space to hear and understand what the other person is communicating, enhancing the quality of the conversation. This is not just being used in offices, but also in commercial spaces, shopping malls, multiplexes, conference halls, classrooms, lecture halls, music clubs, night clubs, restaurants, concert halls etc.

Its high time for each one of us to think and learn about sustainability, sustainable way of living and sustainable architecture. Sustainability was described as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” by the United Nations Brundtland Commission. This clearly states the importance of balance between social and economic growth and environmental balance. Everything that we take from the environment should be given back to it. But the reality is we discover and destroy. It is important for all people to understand how to protect and conserve it for the future.
