Sound & Vibration: Design Guidelines for Health Care Facilities

The Acoustics Research Council first prepared this document in association with the 2010 edition of the FGI Guidelines. Those using the 2010 edition should reference the 2010 edition of Sound & Vibration.

An updated edition for the 2014 FGI documents is in the works; this will include new material on acoustics for residential health, care, and support facilities.

Copies of the 2010 edition can be purchased from the publisher or viewed in read-only format.
