WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE?

Founded in 1947, Veneklasen Associates is the oldest acoustical consulting firm in the world. Our knowledge of building science and professional standards is the result of decades of experience in the design of thousands of buildings worldwide. We believe that acoustics is a science, and that we are dealing with a quantitative subject wherein results should be predictable and subject to formulation. Much of acoustics can also be considered an art form, requiring skill and training. From these characteristics come insight and intuition, which can only be derived from experience.
