Gavin leads the acoustics profession at BDP and has worked on projects across all major sectors.
Based in Manchester Gavin was responsible for the acoustic design in
our Ducie St studio as well as Manchester City Football Academy. He
particularly enjoys the challenges of differing scales of projects both in the
UK and internationally. One of the largest schemes his team worked on was
the Qatar National Convention in Doha which utilised a great many complex
acoustic design elements, all to very high and exacting standards, including
isolated substructures, fully-floating auditoria and low noise
WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING INNOVATION IN DESIGN?
“Advances in computer modelling technology will continue to help realise acoustically innovative and challenging designs. For every type and scale of project, 3D modelling increases accuracy while reducing uncertainty, risk and cost.
