WHO WE ARE

Arquison was formed in Valencia (Spain) in 2004 by a group of architects who were specialized in architectural and environmental acoustics. They had the common objective to offer projects that combined the best acoustic properties with constructive and aesthetic values. In our work we join acoustics and architecture equally.

We provide acoustic consulting services in all kind of spaces and to a wider set of clients, creating acoustic solutions personalized to each situation and moment. We work added values such as mounting details, shop drawings, budgets, analysis of structures, energy efficiency, environmental aspects…

From the beginning, Arquison can be distinguished by its strong presence during the construction process as a distinctive and quality value. For us, the acoustics can’t be separated from the other disciplines involved in the construction of a building.

Our target is to contribute effectively in the construction and the urban development through acoustic consulting, providing more especially our expertise and experience.

Our projects have always focused on solving acoustic issues for institutions, architects, engineers, musicians, artists,... providing in each specific case solutions adapted to their specific environment, economic, technological, ...

The acoustic study becomes an acoustic project when it reaches the level of execution and integrates with the general documentation of the project.

ARCHITECTURE + ACOUSTICS. In Arquison, we strive to be a reference in acoustic consulting providing our on-site expertise. The acoustics as a final element where a large group of trades and occupations are joined, acoustics as part of a whole and target.

We are working hard to create a brand recommended regarding quality and acoustic comfort in all engineering consulting, forums and communities.

The value as an acoustic quality available for all stakeholders in a subjective science, where experience and knowledge with some magic meet equally.

The most rewarding thing is to be able to participate and contribute our value in the execution of large scale infrastructures that allow to some people (artists, musicians, singers...) to convey feelings, messages, moods... and for others (spectators), to receive and participate.
