Cundall launches Australian Acoustics department with appointment of industry leader Share this article

Cundall has appointed Dr Chris Field to lead their new acoustics discipline in Australia.

Chris has established himself as one of Australia’s leading acoustics consultants, working on a wide range of projects in Australia and across the globe. He is an award winning inventor, winning the Australian Acoustical Society Excellence in Acoustics Award and the Invention of the Year on the ABC’s New Inventors TV programme for his innovative passive noise control ventilator.

Andrew Parkin, Global head of Acoustics, Cundall said “Chris’s appointment is an important addition to Cundall, bringing a new dimension to the acoustics team and significantly enhancing our global reach. His vast experience and innovative approach to acoustic design will be a great asset to the Australian and Global team.

“Cundall has been delivering acoustics since 2010; it is an exciting time to expand into the Australian market and was the logical next step in our expansion”

Cundall has been established in Australia for over ten years, providing building services engineering, sustainable design and lighting design across all states. The success of their Acoustics department in the UK has seen a number of innovative and high profile projects being delivered. They made a significant contribution to the updated government acoustic standards for schools and industry guidance for workplace design. Following this success, Cundall has made a strategic decision to expand this offering to the Australian market to add value to their existing clients and secure further work.

Chris said: “The opportunity to join such an innovative and dynamic consultancy is one that could not be missed. I am genuinely excited to join their Australian team and start working alongside their engineers.

“Andrew and his acoustic team have a great reputation for adding value in acoustic design - I am looking forward to working with them, sharing ideas and expanding this excellent reputation into Australia.”
