Project Description

In the last decade, Hanson Associates has been engaged to complete several mission-critical projects relating to building acoustics and the integrated paging and emergency sound systems in operation at Melbourne Airport. The international terminal has seen several system expansions over this period where constantly changing operational demands require upgrades to be implemented with negligible downtime.

Most recently, a high powered, stadium-grade, external loudspeaker system was implemented in the expansive, external forecourt area to provide vital crowd control during major incidents involving mass evacuations of airport terminals. Services were comprehensive including brief development, engineering, construction phase management and electroacoustic commissioning of the loudspeaker system.
