Reduction of Noise in Buildings

Psychology. To appreciate the conditions of the problem which we are studying to-night it is necessary to visualise the circumstances which surround buildings at the present time, the conditions under which we live, and the constructional materials in common use. All these circumstances have very direct bearing, not only upon the amount of noise which exists, but upon the extent to which people using buildings and living in houses, are uncomfortably conscious of this noise; in fact, it may not be too much to say that consciousness of noise is very much more important than noise itself.
