Adnitt Acoustics clients

In regards to the recent engagement with Adnitt Acoustics and the service provided at one of our properties at Ravelrig, Edinburgh I can say that the service was exemplary.

Overall Adnitt certainly delivered on our expectation of service requirements. Graham and Diana have been very helpful and amenable to our requirements of late and we look forward to future engagement.

CALA Homes

Drace Geocisa


Adnitt mastered the complex acoustic requirements for this education building which contained a very diverse and not acoustically complementary range of uses.

Sir Robert McAlpine


The greatest compliment that I can express to the acousticians on this project is that this multi-function arts venue worked straight out of the box on Day One.  Whilst accepting that there were many contributors to the successful end result, Hunter Acoustic’s and Adnitt Acoustics' care and detailing throughout the design process was a real contributor to the problem-free commissioning of this theatre.  During system tuning, a small orchestra and singers tested the room acoustics and the ACS variable acoustics system.  This was a pleasurable experience because the engineers were able to concentrate on the optimum setting up of the system without spending time compensating for faults. The dynamic of the sound experience for both the performers on the stage as well as the listeners in the auditorium was evident from the compliments given afterwards.
