Derian House – Fit for the Future

dBx Acoustics Ltd was delighted to be acoustic consultant for Derian House Children’s Hospice‘s Fit For The Future’ £1.6 million refurbishment scheme.

We worked with 10Architect and Scott Hughes Design to produce a cost effective acoustic design which resolved acoustic issues experienced by the staff and by the visiting children, young adults, and their families. This included enhancing privacy between family flats and between sensitive spaces, improving accessibility by controlling acoustic conditions in office, messy play, sensory and dining areas, and ensuring new building services noise levels were appropriately controlled.

The project completed in January 2020 and we are pleased to have played our part in ensuring Derian House is fit for another 25 years (or more!) providing palliative, specialist respite and end of life care for children and young adults throughout the North West region.
