    On behalf of the AAAC, WSP and Marshall Day presented at the Australian institute of Building Surveyors (AIBS) conference in Canberra in early April. This followed work from 2017 as part of a change in Part 5.  The two presentations were: AS/NZS/ISO 717 Parts 1-2004 and FV5.3 and FV5.4 and Acceptable Construction Practice – Acoustics changes. 

    From all reports the exercise was very successful.  The AAAC would like to formally thank Matthew Ottley MDA and Philip Setton WSP for their time.

    You may have noticed the subtle name change, now Association of Australasian Acoustical Consultants. This is so we can be inclusive of our New Zealand colleagues. We hope to see some prospective members at the mid-year meeting in New Zealand on Saturday 8th July!

    Marshall Day Acoustics wins Hugh Vivian Taylor Award

    AAAC is thrilled to announce that on Saturday November 12 at the AAAC AGM, MDA was announced as winner for 2016 of the Hugh Vivian Taylor Award for the development of IRIS.
    The award is presented by the AAAC and recognises efforts in providing innovation, promoting consulting and advancing the field of acoustics.

    What’s unique about IRIS is its ability to carry out a broad set of room acoustics measurements, including 3D impulse responses, quickly and easily. IRIS allows consultants to accurately measure a range of acoustic parameters including many which have traditionally been very difficult to obtain such as lateral fraction. The ease of use that IRIS offers can mean less time and cost on site for data acquisition and quicker reporting of results through more efficient data post-processing.

    IRIS is the first widely available, commercial 3D acoustic impulse response measurement and visualisation system utilising an ambisonic sound field microphone. 
    Marshall Day Acoustics is delighted that this is the second year in a row winning the HVT award following last year's win for our work the Philharmonie de Paris project.
    So a big congratulations to all of the team involved but most notably Keith Ballagh, Daniel Protheroe, Peter Exton and Chris Day in New Zealand.
