Jack Harvie-Clark - The new ISO 22955: Acoustic Quality of Open Office Spaces
Jack Harvie Clark, CEO of Apex Acoustics, and member of the ISO committee drawing up the new ISO standard, gave us insights at the July 2021 European Smart Work Network meeting.
Extensive surveys show how workplaces are routinely failing people. And one of the biggest identified problems is noise, with an average 34% satisfaction, and over half of offices have satisfaction rates of less than 30%. but what can we do about it? Jack Harvie Clark has been a member of the committee developing the new ISO 22955 standard, which for the first time specifically takes account of open-plan environments and activity-based working, looking at not only the fabric of the workplace but also the need to create human-centred workplaces.. It also has a range of tools to help organisations plan and design for acoustic excellence.
