Cundall expands Australian Acoustics department with key appointment Share this article

Cundall has appointed Patrick Carpenter to lead their Australian acoustics team. Based in Melbourne, Patrick’s appointment enables Cundall to deliver further projects from Victoria.

Cundall has been delivering acoustics globally since 2010 and established an Australian presence in 2014, first starting in Sydney. Following a number of confirmed appointments in Melbourne, Patrick has been tasked to deliver these projects while expanding the business further throughout the region.

“Acoustic services compliments our building services engineering and sustainable design team offerings” comments Garrit Schot, Director at Cundall “We have seen a number of clients value this added service so have made the decision to appoint Patrick here in Melbourne”

Having graduated from RMIT with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Physics) in 2005, Patrick has been involved in a large number of building projects ranging from the very small to extremely large specialising in design, specification and commissioning for room acoustics, sound insulation and building services systems. Patrick also has extensive experience in the environmental noise and planning field.

“I am looking forward to expanding the acoustics team and work alongside an innovative global acoustics team who not only are leaders in the field, but are also pushing the boundaries with their innovations like the Virtual Acoustics Realty™ (VAR) system” said Patrick “I have previously worked alongside Cundall on a number of projects and I am excited to join their team”

Cundall has received a number of industry awards for their innovative use of the Oculus Rift to create Cundall VAR enabling design teams to hear and see what it is like to be inside a building before it is built.

Andrew Parkin, Global head of Acoustics at Cundall said “We are excited to welcome Patrick to the global acoustic team and look forward to him bringing his knowledge and experience to the Melbourne office”

In Australia, the acoustics team has been working for a number of clients across a number of sectors including Stockland, Deakin University, Department of Education & Training and Defense Housing Australia. They are also working with a confidential global client in both Melbourne and Sydney as part of a wider Asia Pac contract for office fit-out design.
