  • Whisperwave Clouds at UVA

    UVA OpenGroundsThe OpenGrounds facility at the University of Virginia was designed as a collaborative meeting and workspace for faculty and student groups. William Sherman, the architect behind the renovation of the building knew that a space with high ceilings and an open layout like this one, needed to have acoustics taken into consideration.

    Large gatherings, open table discussions, and presentations require a room with low reverberation for speech intelligibility. So to achieve this, Sherman contacted us and we recommended Whisperwave® Clouds. Whisperwave acoustical clouds are made with sound absorbing foam material with an NRC .85 and are effective at reducing high reverberation times created by bare surfaces.

    Lindsey Hepler, the program manager for OpenGrounds, says that there was a noticeable difference in the sound and usability of the space after the Whisperwave Clouds were installed.
