With the cloud application dBEL.Architect, the design can be optimized for noise reduction and good acoustics in the early planning phases. Competition designs become smarter, there are no nasty surprises in the approval and the architectural result is simply more livable – thanks to less noise and good spatial sound.
dBEL.Architect optimizes construction planning
“Noise protection and room acoustics are often given secondary importance in the planning process. Integrating these topics into the planning process at an early stage can often save trouble, time and ultimately money. With the help of dBEL.Architect, we already recognize critical acoustic issues during a competition or in the early performance phases and can take appropriate measures in good time and counteract them if necessary. Handling is easy and intuitive. Our architectural objectives in cooperation with specialist planners can be communicated much more precisely.”
Christoph Towara, Head of Planning, DGI Bauwerk Gesellschaft von Architekten mbH
Good sound as a competitive advantage
dBEL.Architect suggests acoustic optimizations based on planning data, for example on the type of use and the size of the project. With this virtual acoustics consultant, architects set themselves apart from the competition: they can identify critical sound situations at an early stage and take them into account in further planning.
This is how it works
Acoustic forecasts in five minutes
Entering the construction project, including all relevant input parameters, only takes 5 minutes. Thanks to the integrated geo model, preset noise values and a comprehensible classification of the results, the design can be checked quick and easy and optimized in terms of sound technology.
Acoustic conflict detector
dBEL.Architect highlights approval-relevant or qualitative acoustic conflicts and suggests solutions.
Professional acoustic planning
With just a few clicks, pleasant acoustics can be created for every planned room – without even needing the help of a structural physicist.
A knowledge-based system, developed by specialist engineers from the Wölfel Group, enables valid noise analyzes without acoustic know-how.
A global geomodel locates construction projects and places them in the context of surrounding noise sources, such as traffic and commerce.
What’s behind it all?
The database for the dBEL.Architect acoustic forecasts is a global ready-to-use data model in conjunction with AI (artificial intelligence). The data is processed and prepared via a cloud platform as a central interface. In this way, a finished 3D house model with predefined noise data is already available for each project address.

Architects and construction planners receive a personal introduction to the dBEL.Architect tool. This can be requested via e-mail. After that, dBEL.Architect is available to you free of charge for 30 days for testing purposes.
Planning heat pumps acoustically sensibly
500,000 new heat pumps per year Climate-friendly alternative or noise emitter? According to the government, 500,000 heat pumps are to be installed in Germany every year from 2024. Although these represent a climate-friendly alternative to conventional oil or gas heating, they can be associated with enormous noise pollution. [caption id="attachment_821"
