Is your acoustical consultant responsive, or have you been waiting days for a callback? Do you have different firms and consultants for every piece of the project, and communication is overwhelming? Are you still looking for the best fit for your project because the consultants aren’t listening to your venue challenges?

At HMBA, we work closely with the architect and interior designers to achieve optimal acoustics while supporting their design concepts.

Acoustical Consultant for
Exceptional Venues

The team at HMBA has over 100 combined years of experience and the work to show for it. Our past projects become the building blocks for your completely custom space based on your specific programming needs and acoustical challenges.

“In an industry where everyone is a sound expert, it is very difficult to please all the artists and fans. Without exception, this has been accomplished at the AJB Music Center. As one major touring artist put it in a recent public tweet, ‘the venue is one of the finest sounding rooms on Earth.’ It’s no simple task to create an acoustically exceptional venue out of 70,000 square feet of steel and concrete, but HMBA was successful in doing so.” – Music & Event Management Inc.

Acoustic Services for all Spaces

We start by listening and collaborating with the design team
to provide an acoustic environment that is pleasing
to both the audience and the performer.

Our Customized Process

HMBA designs performance venues for facilities across the United States, and we never offer “cookie-cutter” designs, even if the facility is similar to another recent project.

We start by listening to your acoustic goals for the venue. You’ll tell us your program, and then we’ll work on detailed acoustic models with room shaping, reverberation time analysis, and noise isolation of the venue.

As acoustical consultants, we also analyze the mechanical systems to keep background noise levels acceptable and choose materials to provide optimum acoustics.

We have decades of acoustic engineering experience to help you achieve your project goals.


Our “Inside-Out” approach starts by listening to the owner, administrative and artistic staff, and end-users prioritize your needs and offer innovative solutions.



Through collaboration and customization, we provide multiple options that are never “cookie-cutter,” because the project program guides the design.



When you work with HMBA, a Principal Consultant stays on your project from the first meeting through the last, a true partner on your project.
