The acoustics market is primarily driven by government regulations in place in several parts of the world to curb noise pollution. This has necessitated buildings to be insulated with acoustic materials that can prevent noise to spread. While these regulations are already in place in developed countries, the relatively new implementation of these regulations in developing regions is leading to adoption of acoustic material and products. A major challenge in implementing these regulations is the availability of less knowledge of the subject along with the budget constrain. With the confusion created with number of options available that can be adopted for a certain project, it becomes necessary to put in place the correct solution with technical knowledge and thus an acoustic consultant is required to be on board.
This is where Mumbai based Noise and Acoustic Consulting company Jhaveri and Jhaveri founded by Late Ar. AjitJhaveri comes into the picture. The company has been practicing in the field of architectural and interiors acoustics for the past 57 years. It focuses on providing correct solution to achieve best acoustics.

When asked about how the company addresses the expectations from their clients, Ar. Uchita says, “Expectations of our clients differs from project-to-project. Each space needs to be treated differently, as required sound level for each room varies with its function and beyond acceptable limits affects human health.
