Union Carbide Condos Sound Isolation

Sound and floor-impact isolation in condominium construction is an important consideration for residents. Residential life requires privacy. At the living units of the Union Carbide Building, design measures have been incorporated to work with the existing structure of the building to provide a superior degree of isolation from the noise of residential life, as well as the annoying thumps and rumbles typically associated with living in a space below another resident.

Engineered by the best acoustical engineers in the region, Brian F. Kubicki of Acoustical Design Group, Inc., the measures incorporated in the Union Carbide Condominiums, including floor and ceiling isolation systems and carefully designed demising and exterior wall systems, are far superior at sound and impact noise control compared to the typical condominium construction employed throughout the Metropolitan Kansas City Area.
