The acoustical environment cannot be seen, but
its presence is influential. New building materials, changing technology and
mechanical systems, open office spaces, and awareness of acoustics in the
workplace and learning environment have now made the consideration of acoustic
control an important component in the traditional design process.
is an acoustical consulting firm, specializing in building acoustics
and noise and vibration control. Jack B. Evans, P.E., founded the firm
in 1986 in Austin, Texas, as a corporation to focus on architectural
and mechanical noise and vibration control, acoustics, and environmental
noise. JEA is a Small Business Concern (size standard less than
$14 M annual average gross) with a Standard Industry Classification (SIC) 8711,
Consulting Engineering. JEA has consulted on more than 35 sustainable design or
LEED® projects and completed over 1600 acoustical,
environmental, and mechanical noise and vibration control projects in 34 states
of the U.S. and 39 countries in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
Architectural acoustics includes reverberation,
echo, focus, and sound isolation. Vibration and mechanical noise control focuses
on building HVAC and process equipment. Industrial acoustics is the control of
sound exposure in the work place. Environmental noise is the prediction,
measurement, and mitigation of outdoor noise, including transportation, amplified
music, and mechanical equipment.
provides solutions for acoustical needs that complement rather than compromise
the architects’ and engineers’ basic design concepts.
JEA's solutions for vibration, acoustics, and
noise control enhance each facility's unique environmental characteristics.
The owner and designers can rely on competent and pragmatic consultation to
formulate integrated solutions to the complex problems of modern design.
Our secret of success is a staff commitment to
personalized, one-on-one service between client and primary consultant. The firm
works closely with facility managers, engineers, and architects to integrate
acoustics and noise control recommendations into facility designs and to conduct
field noise measurements and analyses for fundamental, cost effective, and
We can provide services in the client's office, on
