I recently worked with BAP Acoustics on a P3 [public-private partnership] project pursuit, and found them to be very knowledgeable and a valuable member. Their team was instrumental in helping to refine our acoustics strategy to achieve the proper combination of cost effectiveness and technical performance. I would be happy to work with BAP Acoustics in the future.

We had good fortune to work with BAP Acoustics in 2013 when they acted as acoustic consultant on our Kensington Community Hall project for the City of Vancouver. BAP'S expertise and professionalism contributed to the project's success. Their knowledge of innovative products and creative problem solving impressed us and led us to engage BAP in 2014 as part of our team for the new Invermere Multi-purpose Community Project, which includes significantly more complex acoustic requirements. We would not hesitate to recommend BAP Acoustics.

We have worked with BAP Acoustics on multiple projects as our go-to resource for acoustic consulting. In particular, we engaged their services for the owner of a large tenant improvement project with stringent acoustic requirements. BAP assisted our consultant team and contractor in successfully resolving significant issues during the construction phase that could have delayed handover. Their team is always accommodating, efficient and reliable. We gladly recommend BAP to our clients and would recommend them to anyone else.

We first worked with BAP Acoustics on a multipurpose assembly space in a significant heritage building with a number of challenging programmatic, formal, and material constraints. BAP provided useful advice from the very first meeting and was proactive throughout the entire design process with data-driven design input. Their advice, being performance-based rather than prescriptive , allowed the design team to choose from multiple acoustic solutions to find the best fit with the overall design intent. It was an excellent collaboration and we’d have no hesitation in asking BAP Acoustics to work with us in the future

I write, on behalf of the Club, to thank you for acting as an expert witness in the matter of our civil suit. Your reports were well written, concise, unbiased and confident in their tone and displayed comprehensive knowledge of sound abatement policy and regulation. In my opinion, as a fellow professional, they were pivotal to the plaintiffs' overwhelming desire to settle before the matter came to trial. It was pleasure to do business with BAP Acoustics.

BAP Acoustics provided exceptional and professional acoustic engineering for a fast-track laboratory project where users worked with very loud, vibrating equipment such as concrete saws and LA abrasion machines. BAP measured the sound generated on-site and provided practical, buildable solutions that allowed for worker comfort in nearby offices. BAP’s work was timely and responsive to unique user situations. I would have no hesitation in working with BAP Acoustics again on similar technically challenging projects.

Naomi Gross

Principal, Chernoff Thompson Architects

BAP Acoustics were a pleasure to work with. They offered insight in regards to acoustic engineering principles, imparting in-depth knowledge to our design team in a cohesive and architecturally sensitive manner. Their thorough understanding of acoustics allowed us to tailor solutions in direct response to the architecture and the project budget. The team was very helpful and always available to meet us or our clients to explain the importance of acoustic design in maximizing the functionality and user experience of the built environment. We will continue to work with BAP Acoustics on future projects.

BAP’s consultation was crucial in realizing our design for a technically challenging recording space. They presented well-researched acoustic criteria and material considerations that met our particular spatial and budgetary constraints. BAP offered our team very clear solutions that allowed us to focus our design intent. The result is a functionally elegant recording environment that has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from both musicians and recording engineers. I highly recommend BAP for their level of expertise, professionalism, and collaborative spirit.

BAP was wonderful to work with. Knowing we had expert advice before beginning construction alleviated a lot of our concerns and follow-up site visits from Mark and Eric ensured our contractors were following the plans. BAP was mindful of our budget and always suggested alternative products to achieve our goal of a relaxing, restful, quiet environment for our guests.

It has been a pleasure working with you to date on highly intricate and demanding projects. You have been patient and accommodating to all of our thoughts and design requirements, and our clients are very satisfied with the acoustical performance of their very sensitive spaces. I look forward to working with you in the future.

As the office landscape moves to a more open plan there are increasing acoustic issues. SSDG has engaged BAP on several occasions to work with our team to solve issues including: large open floor plates, open ceilings, noise transfer between offices / meeting rooms, and video conference rooms. BAP has been great to work with and offer solutions tailored to each clients’ specific needs. The BAP team are very professional, respond in a timely manner and fit well in a collaborative team environment. They are our ‘go to’ acoustic engineers and we would highly recommend them.
