Places of worship

A place of public worship has specific requirements, which differs from other public spaces:

  • Clarity of speech is of utmost importance where speech is easy to comprehend;
  • Music should blend in the room and not be too dead so that it is easy to sing and listen to.
  • A ‘Cry Room’ is often required for parents to care for their children while still participating in the church service.

Local Councils require a noise impact assessment for all new and redeveloped places of public worship buildings.

Day Design has provided acoustic reports for many churches, mosques, temples and worship halls, and welcome new enquiries.

Day Design has assisted Local Councils to ensure that new applications satisfy Council guidelines. Sometimes these matters are required to be resolved in the NSW Land & Environment Court.
