Before Your Consultation

Before your first consultation, ask yourself a few questions, so you have a sense of the issues you want a sound masking system to solve and how much you can afford for a solution.

What Are Your Facility's Problem Areas?

Is there a space that employees avoid because it’s just too noisy there to get anything done? Are there rooms wherein you have urgent and pertinent privacy problems? Jot them down in a list somewhere and bring them to your first appointment to make sure all your concerns are covered.

Though our team is as thorough and detail-oriented as they come, it saves valuable time if we know where to focus our efforts to cater to your satisfaction. We want to leave you completely happy with your sound management, and we love it when our clients share the same goal!

What’s Your Budget?

Sound masking more than pays for itself in the boosted productivity and profits you’ll receive after its installation. That being said, just like with any renovation, there is an upfront cost, and it’s helpful to have your price point on hand before the consultation begins.

We at Building Systems Solutions strive to create the pinnacle of excellent speech privacy, no matter the limitations. So instead of asking, “How much does a sound management system cost,” it’s better to ask, “What am I willing to pay?” Sound masking doesn’t have to break the bank in order to see incredible results.

If you want specifics, though, sound masking systems can run anywhere from a dollar to three dollars per square foot. You can also check out our sound masking system ROI calculator to have an idea of your potential ROI.

Does Your Space Have Speech Privacy Requirements?

Speech privacy, from a legal standpoint, is of great concern in financial institutions and healthcare buildings.

While any properly installed sound masking system will reduce the intelligibility of speech from across the room, you may want to understand what’s required of your building in terms of HIPAA standards, the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act, or any other applicable regulation to get the most out of your installation.

During Your Consultation

The best way to be prepared for a consultation for sound masking is to have your questions ready. Not sure what to ask? Here’s a list of questions to keep in mind.

  • How long have you been working as a sound masking technician?

  • Can you provide similar examples of work you’ve completed in the past?

  • Can you explain the installation process?

  • What sound masking products do you use and why?

  • Will you conduct a noise assessment to determine the specific needs of our space?

  • Can you provide references from previous projects?

  • Are sound masking systems customizable to our different areas or departments?

Satisfactory answers to these questions will help you determine if you’ve found the right sound masking company. It also helps if the sound masking technician is professional, compassionate, and solution-oriented.

A good sound masking technician will also know the needs of your type of space before they even arrive, such as needs for banks, hospitals, or other institutions that host private conversations.
