ADVANTAGES

SAVING

Our Acoustic Engineering Studies allow the control of the minimum reinforcement insulation solution for each noise propagation path, with the least amount of material, with an intelligent thickness design of air chambers and damping systems (Law of Mass), treating only the propagation paths that need it. It happens in a similar way in the rooms acoustic comfort adaptation methods. 

WARRANTY

At Tafor we guarantee that the proposed building solutions are the minimum you need to avoid excesses (unnecessary additional costs) and shortfalls (investment loss). Our calculations are contrasted with 3D Beam Tracing Method simulations, and the result can also be contrasted in situ (ISO12354)

PROJECTS

Here are some examples of projects where tafor has solved noise problems to companies:

Palma de Mallorca Airport – Terminal C (PMI)

In Airports and Industrial areas, Tafor Consulting controls several fronts of Noise Propagation, first of all the Noise Footprint of the Aircrafts approaching the runway, which will then require protecting the airport surrounding houses. On the other hand, we optimize the soundproofing of the passenger Terminals, and we control the interior acoustic comfort using acoustic adaptation by noise absorption methods. And finally, we design a good PA system to achieve a high interior intelligibility and the highest attention from the passengers to messages and advertising.

Wave House Hotel by Sol-Meliá (Magaluf)

In Hotels and Resorts, such as the Wave House Hotel by Sol-Melia in Magalluf, the first thing is to Control the Exteriors Noise Impact to obtain the Licence for outdoor Music and the Concerts and Surfing Wave Pools activities. At Tafor Consulting, we achieve significant savings by reducing the soundproofing materials between rooms by controlling the thickness of the air chambers, and lastly, by designing the interior for the optimum Acoustic Comfort in the restaurant, chill-out, conference and auditorium areas. The facilities Noise is a critical point in order to avoid noise in the Attic Suites located right under the chillers and other machinery.

Marriott Port au Prince Hotel (Haití)

In Hotels and Resorts, such as the Marriott Port au Prince Hotel in Haiti, the first thing is to Control the Exteriors Noise Impact to obtain the Licence for outdoor Music. At Tafor Consulting, we achieve significant savings by reducing the soundproofing materials between rooms by controlling the thickness of the air chambers, and lastly, by designing the interior for the optimum Acoustic Comfort in the restaurant, chill-out, conference and auditorium areas. The facilities Noise is a critical point in order to avoid noise in the Attic Suites located right under the chillers and other machinery.

Puro Hotel

Puro Hotel

In Hotels and Resorts, such as the Puro Urban Oasis and Puro Beach Club in Palma de Mallorca, the first thing is to Control the Noise Impact to exteriors in order to obtain the Licence for outdoor Music. At Tafor Consulting, we achieve significant savings by reducing the soundproofing materials between rooms by controlling the thickness of the air chambers, and lastly, by designing the interior for the optimum Acoustic Comfort in the restaurant, chill-out, conference and auditorium areas. The facilities Noise is a critical point in order to avoid noise in the Attic Suites located right under the chillers and other machinery.

Pacha

In Discotheques / Night Clubs, such as Pacha Mallorca and Pacha Lounge Bilbao, we calculate the minimum soundproofing reinforcement together with the sound limitation in frequencies, as well as the acoustic treatment in the facilities and the Interior Acoustic Comfort (sound distribution, interior reverberation, optimum equalization). This way, at Tafor Consulting we achieve the best interior acoustics (high fidelity, flat spectrum with bass, uniform coverage) while complying with the noise pollution regulations.

Nikki Beach

In Beach Clubs, such as Nikki Beach Ibiza and Nikki Beach Mallorca, Tafor Consulting guarantees optimum calculations for the exterior noise attenuations at the lowest cost associated to a sound limitation in frequencies, to obtain the best high fidelity sound in the area of public, always complying with the environmental noise pollution regulations. In closed rooms we also calculate the minimum soundproofing and the optimum noise-absorbing materials (acoustics and aesthetics) for interior acoustic comfort conditioning.

Ibiza Rocks Hotel

To avoid the noise emission to nearby buildings, as happened in Ibiza Rocks, Tafor Consulting guarantees the calculation of the optimum stage and loudspeakers location, avoiding noise impact to neighbours while maintaining a maximum sound level in the concert area, without altering the surrounding materials at all (without acoustic screens, with no building materials extra cost). To control the Concerts noise impact such as the Ibiza Rocks Hotel Concerts in Sant Antoni (Ibiza), we control the noise sources (sound power spectrum) and the surroundings, calculating the minimum acoustic noise attenuation reinforcement with barriers, and/or a sound limitation within the sound amplifying equipment.

Formula 1. LLucmajor Circuit
(Including Montecarlo C. tests)

To obtain the complete Exterior Noise Control, in Events such as the LLucmajor (Mallorca) Formula 1 Circuit, Tafor Consulting guarantees a very precise noise control sources (sound power spectrum) and of the surrounding materials, calculating the minimum acoustic reinforcement with noise barriers, and also a sound limitation if we have any sound amplified equipment. To control the F1 noise power spectrum, we carry out a series of tests in the Montecarlo Formula 1 Circuit Event, as part of the LLucmajor F1 project.

Unión Fenosa Call Centre<br/> (Velle, Orense)

Unión Fenosa Call Centre
(Velle, Orense)

In Call Centers and Offices, such as the Unión Fenosa Call Center in Ourense, It’s essential to guarantee the optimum acoustic comfort in interior workplaces in order to protect the workers from the noise, while increasing productivity. In these special cases, with various sources of interior noise (persons and facilities), Tafor Consulting can accurately control the interior noise absorption to reduce background noise and reverberation, as well as the facilities noise, and most importantly, can avoid conversations interference between phone operators by noise barriers.

Thermal Power Station of Meirama<br/>Unión Fenosa Generación (La Coruña)

Thermal Power Station of Meirama
Unión Fenosa Generación (La Coruña)

In industrial areas close to residential areas, something that is getting more and more common due to the expansion of the areas suitable for urban development, it is essential to control the noise emission into the surroundings in order to guarantee the operating licence (compliance with regulations) and also to avoid inconveniences to neighbours (quality targets). Depending on the sound level generated (spectrum in frequencies) and on the distance to the areas to be protected, at Tafor Consulting we will study the optimum solution and the feasibility of the required acoustic treatment.

Spain’s Pavilion
at Expozaragoza 2008 (Zaragoza)

In Auditoriums and Multipurpose Rooms, such as Spain’s Pavilion at Expo Zaragoza, interior acoustic conditioning of the enclosures is essential in order to achieve optimum intelligibility and uniform sound distribution, and also to minimize background noise (facilities and exterior noise) and avoid echoes, resonances and high reverberation. For enclosures with music, it is essential to achieve a flat spectrum sound throughout the room, which won’t modify the original sound spectrum. Tafor Consulting guarantees the best acoustics throughout the enclosure by using statistical calculations and 3D Beam Tracing Method simulations.

Palma Pictures <br />(Palma de Mallorca)

Palma Pictures
(Palma de Mallorca)

In Musical Recording and/or Broadcasting Studios, such as Palma Pictures in Palma de Mallorca (carried out in collaboration with Noise Kontrol), it is essential to achieve a completely neutral acoustic response in the rooms in order to avoid sound modification by background noise, resonances, reverberation or even the interference of noise between the rooms and the exterior. At Tafor Consulting we guarantee the complete noise control between rooms by using soundproofing systems especially designed for each particular case, reducing the cost to a minimum by controlling the thickness of air chambers chambers and damping systems. Similarly, we control minimum noise absorption to obtain high fidelity sound, with a maximum signal to noise ratio, and without any noise pollution.
