"There is not a good Acoustics, but Right Acosutics"

This is the starting point with which WS works.
Because every space is different, every case a particular case and environment, specific.
For that, our tasks are looking for solutions, designs and strategies most appropriated to each project.

Our purpose is to provide the optimum acosutics to each hall and for this, we are involved on the project from the very first time, designing with Architecture forms and materials.
We care not just internal acoustics, but sound isoaltion and acosutic noise control from machinery.
Our SERVICES include projects for
  • Auditory
  • Theater
  • Opera
  • Multifunction Halls
  • Congresual Palace
  • Cinema

Through their professional experience, WS employees have been involved in the major Auditorios, Theaters and Culture Centers in Spain and U.E., all of them great and high quality buildings.

SERVICES

Acoustic Consultant Services

Our task begins as the project creation process starts.
A constant dialogue with Architecture and Engeenering enable us to provide our proposals, ideas and recomendations at the very begining, improving the integration of all elements into a good acoustic enviroment. The involvement of consultancy acoustic covers all areas, from the

project redaction

,

building

and ends with a

final measurements

used to characterize the acoustics, checking the compliance with the objectives that have been demanded.
PROFILE
Jordi Oliver is the founder of WS.
His experience of over 10 years has allowed to participate in the drafting of major concert halls, theaters and Opera, both Spain and the EU, Africa and America.

Physicist

graduate, he complemented his studies of fundamental physics and geophysics with specific

Architectural Acoustics

studies.
After completing a DEA on earthquake prediction and make studies of materials for their suitability to standard noise, he starts to work at the studio of Dr. Higini Arau, which since 2004 has developed his professional career. The work on this prestigious office has put him in contact with the largest architecture firms in the world and has participated in the drafting of important concert halls, conference centers and other public works. Working alongside Dr. Arau, has formed in the innermost secrets of acoustics, learning to determine the needs, problems and solutions to different types of rooms.
His constant contact with the world of music and Masters organ builders Gerhard Grenzing SA, of which is its external acoustic consultant since 1998, have brought a special musical sensitivity that make it closer to the world of concert halls .
