Loud Gym Space
Gymnasiums are typically large, oversized shoe-box shaped rooms filled with unwanted sound reflections that render the room useless as a teaching facility. Seen here is the gymnasium located at the Encana Christina Lake Kids Camp in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. Their director, Simon Cook, had contacted NetWell Noise Control seeking help in producing a more favorable acoustic environment in their gym. The sound reflections were so bad in the room that students, parents, and teachers were all complaining about the use of the space. The echoes were intolerable, the room was uncomfortable, the teachers and coaches were unable to communicate with the kids.
