When building a theater, acoustics has to be considered a priority. Factors impacting acoustical planning include: background noises, theater size, buffer zones, balconies, materials and the shape of the room. Other factors affecting acoustics entail: reverberation, echo, loudness, the Echelon effect and resonance.

Moreover, acoustic issues result from improper design and construction limitations. Therefore, poor acoustics can be caused by: hard surfaces (bare floors and walls), hard furniture (wooden tables, chairs and counters), noise sources and high ceilings. A part of the energy of the sound is absorbed by friction when it strikes a surface. Smoothed or curved reflecting surfaces (such as domes or curved walls) act as focusing elements (sound foci) creating large echoes and leading to bad acoustics.

Good acoustics require adequate intensity achieved by sound being evenly distributed and noise levels/pollution being significantly reduced. Therefore, controlling exterior noise is essential for the acoustics of a theater.

All in all, when building a theater it is important to be mindful of all factors that can impact acoustics either negatively or positively. Poor acoustics can render a theater not fully functional, which would defeat the purpose of building one. All architectural elements and construction limitations have to be carefully considered before beginning the project. Moreover, having a detailed plan is preferable and may prove essential to the task being completed successfully.  Looking to a building like Haselden Construction that has the experience is one of the most important choices when starting the construction process.
