We are the FOUNDERS of acoustics, noise control, vibration control and sound system design. Founded in 1947, Veneklasen Associates is the oldest and largest acoustical consulting firm in the world. Our knowledge of building science and professional standards are 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. That said, much of acoustics is also an art requiring experience and skill from which come insight and intuition derived from experience.
