This aim of this material is to provide some clarity when it comes to the acoustic properties of flooring:
It will cover the following:
- The basics of acoustics and why it’s important to consider acoustics at the design stage and so select the right materials.
- Acoustic tests, which for flooring are sound absorption and impact sound transmission
- key technical terms are explained to help cut through some of the confusion about acoustic results and manufacturers claims.
- Typical acoustic results for flooring and how that can contribute to the acoustics of a space relative to other surfaces (materials).

Creating Positive Spaces by Designing for Community
The CPD aims to develop understanding of human centred design beyond health and wellbeing to a recognition that the formation of stronger resilient communities are an essential and valuable part of our life in the built environment. It explores what communities are past, present and future, then lists the essential elements that are needed to form them. This learning will then be connected to explain how an enhanced connection to nature puts us in a more positive and optimistic state of mind, one where we are more likely to share a conversation and ideas. 7 key features for enhancing communities through Biophilic Design are developed from this, to encourage mixing, mingling and connecting in the built environment. By the end of the CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
- The elements needed to create a strong resilient community.
The business benefit to creating designs that support and develop communities.
- Which market leaders are doing this well
- Stephen Kellert's socio-psychological approach to biophilic design.
- How to recognise and be able to implement the 7 features for enhancing community using biophilic design

This CPD can be delivered to you live and remotely.
