Do you hear private conversations in the office next door, even if you shut your door?
For some companies, this is merely a nuisance and productivity drain. But in industries dealing with confidential legal, health, or financial information, a lack of privacy is a nonstarter and soundproof office space is essential.
To keep conversations from being heard through your office walls, your landlord must be notified during your lease negotiation that you have a special buildout requirement -acoustical treatments between interior office walls are not typically included in standard office designs. Instead, interior walls are usually just metal and sheetrock.
These may include things like:
In addition, construction details should include acoustical caulking, staggered joints, framed penetrations around studs and appropriate sealing of penetrations.
