DUBAI, UAE, February 13, 2011 - A demonstration with real sound, architectural acoustics and the impact
on the design of public address and emergency evacuation systems in a glass
enclosed transportation center is set to feature at an event designed to help
architects in Saudi Arabia this April.

Fred T. Shen, President of Shen Milsom Wilke, LLC will be discussing
acoustics and electro acoustic interplay in large venue spaces at IQPC's
Acoustics in Construction from the 10 - 13 April 2011 at the Riyadh Marriott
Hotel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia summit.

Thanks to the improvement in the quality of components used in modern
systems and advancements in digital signal processing, the use of acoustic
enhancement systems has been on the rise for years. Ongoing research has
provided greater insight into what modern systems require to perform

Acoustics, noise, and vibrations have a tremendous impact on individuals'
lives and businesses, especially in densely populated urban environments. In
the construction sector, consideration of acoustics is important during all
stages of a project. It is essential that new projects are not only
fit-for-purpose in terms of end user noise tolerance and legislation, but
they also provide cost-effective and high performance acoustic solutions to
acoustic requirements.

Contractors are implementing acoustic enhancement systems in venues of
all types, both indoors and outdoors. These systems are a new tool that offer
architects, acoustic consultants, and sound designers greater ability in
providing a more acoustically enjoyable experience. The applications are
equally varied, from concert halls, opera houses, and performing arts venues
to houses of worship, sports arenas, sound stages, recording facilities, and
even private homes.

Mr Shen experts join a host of critically acclaimed international and
regional acoustic engineers and architects including Prof. Samir N. Y. Gerges
, President ICA and Vice President, I-INCE, Gerald Stewart, Acoustic
Director, AECOM, Roger Kelly, Chairman Designate, Building Acoustic Group
Committee, Institute of Acoustics UK, Daryl Prasad , Managing Director UK,
Marshall Day Acoustics, Nizar Kamouna, Senior Project Manager, KEO
International Consultants in speaking at Acoustics in Construction Saudi
Arabia summit, a four day forum being held in Riyadh from 10 - 13 April 2011.
The event will explore regulatory and contractual requirements as well as the
latest innovations in materials and technologies and optimise planning and
design. . For more information about this event, visit email or call
