Knowing Buildings magazine was looking to cover the importance of acoustics in medical facilities, we reached out to offer an expert source from Taylor Johnson client Ryan Companies. In the resulting story, Ryan’s Megan McNally offered solutions to the various acoustical challenges inherent in healthcare facilities, from noise bouncing off an abundance of hard surfaces to loud MRI machines. She also discussed the benefits of materials that absorb sound and clean up easily while also offering a pleasing aesthetic, such as high-performing ceiling tile, cubicle curtains and resilient flooring.
