You may not think of sound absorbing panels when you contemplate going out to eat or for cocktails with friends. An outdoor garden with a wall may not be your idea of a fun atmosphere, but what if it is incorporated beautifully.
For instance, a pizza restaurant owner contacted us about building a wall that would help ease the neighbor’s concerns about loud music and talking during the summer months when customers wanted to frequently spend time dining in an outdoor garden. The client wanted to build a wall that would allow them to create a larger dining space, but the bigger challenge was finding a way to make it appealing to diners and the public on the other side.
Restaurant Sound Wall Construction Project
We impressed our pizza client by showing up to the zoning hearings with technical information that showed exactly how we proposed to build a sound absorbing wall that would protect the environment, create a quiet space for customers, and fulfill zoning requirements and regulations.
By working as a team, we consulted with the client on several occasions to help them understand the scope of the project, how we customize our sound walls, and for zoning approval. Our goal is to design a solution to sound level abatement for any industry, business, location, and problem set.
Creating A Unique Patio Area Where Customers Want To Hang Out And Dine
The community was very nervous about adding a wall to the garden, but at the same time, they wanted a nice space to have some family time on warm, summer nights. We proposed a three-sided wall with sound absorbing materials.
Our reason was twofold because competing sounds from other restaurants and outdoor venues in the area contributed to the overall decibel level in the garden area. We also needed to minimize the sound from the pizzeria, especially later in the evening when residents are going to bed early for work or school the following day.
Besides maintaining sound levels, the client needed access for a fire escape and patrons. Finally, an appealing design was extremely important to building the brand for the client with a space that allows them to accommodate more diners and invite repeat business. Our ivy screens improve the project over time adding more appeal and charm as the garden grows and ages.
Taking Sound Levels Down To An Acceptable Level
Because the pizzeria is in a place with other restaurants serving outdoor customers, the zoning committee required a permit that shows how the restaurant planned to tackle late night noise, music, and conversation levels.
Our sound walls reduce decibel levels by as much as 25 percent. The additional ivy screens will add more sound dampening capabilities over time allowing the pizzeria to block out nearby sound pollution.
Because our wall absorbs the sound instead of reflecting it, the client never has to worry about being offensive to the neighboring homes. By using the wall, the pizza parlor creates a better dining experience and becomes a good steward of the community. The improvements help get more people in the door to enjoy pizza and spend time in the new garden.
