"I have never 'worked' a day in my life as I simply love what I do and the vastly different challenges that each and every day offers"
The diversity of our discipline is what sets acoustics apart. This may sound like a catchall buzz-phrase but in what other discipline in any industry can you be:
- testing noise with anti-static field acoustic equipment on a gas or oil field in the middle of the Arabian Gulf on Sunday,
- attending site supervision meetings for a new cinema building in Saudi Arabia on Monday,
- designing a generator enclosure for a roof plant room in Melbourne on Tuesday,
- providing complex building advice for protecting penthouse apartments directly below a dance club in Vietnam on Wednesday
- performing complex noise modelling for an international museum on Thursday and
- assessing road, rail and air traffic noise in Perth on Friday?
And this is a small part of our team's activity in acoustics and next week will be different! Having worked in the acoustic industry since my teens, I simply love what I do and the vastly different challenges that each and every day offers.
