This course is intended to help architects, engineers, and especially building owners understand the issues that can arise when trying to bring an active fitness facility into a mixed use building or development and how these issues can best be addressed. The session will include a discussion of the various types of fitness franchises and the acoustic concerns that come along with them (as well as how to deal with such concerns though architectural and managerial methods). We will also cover the basics on how sound propagates through a building, and discuss what features (in terms of building type and tenant location) to look for (or avoid) when planning for a new tenant or a new franchise location. This course will also include demonstrations and case studies of specific issues and the methods used to resolve them.
