Poppy Szkiler. founder and managing director of Quiet Mark, the international approval award programme associated with the UK Noise Abatement Society, explores the impact of noise in the built environment. It's fair to say, noise is a constant challenge for the building products industry to solve to create more comfortable acoustic environments. It's not so much the noise generated by the building process, rather the long-term acoustic design and effort to improve the aural experience of the buildings we spend our lives in, because sound profoundly affects all our physical rhythms as human beings.
