Medical BioTech Adopts Sound Masking for Open Floor Office

For the past 27 years, Medpace has been making strides in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and medical devices around the globe.

The full-service clinical contract research organization has more than 30 offices in Europe, North America, Asia, Australia, South Africa and Latin America, including a Medpace office based in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area.

Medpace uses advanced scientific methods to provide Phase I-IV clinical trials. Trial findings develop safe treatments in major areas: oncology, cardiology, metabolic disease, endocrinology, central nervous system, anti-viral and anti-infective.

The demand for reliable, fast clinical trials has increased in recent months. Medpace is dedicated to providing the highest quality research by expanding operations in 37 countries with 3,500 employees. This growth led to the Dallas operation’s move to larger office space in Irving.

Sound Masking Installed for Better Communication, Security and Privacy

Medpace’s DFW division tasked c2mtech to help with employee productivity via sound masking. The new two-story office featured a large, open concept office which proved difficult for communication.

In large rooms with many workers, sound masking adds background white noise that reduces distractions and makes workers more comfortable. It further protects speech privacy — a key concern for businesses that handles sensitive data.

As an authorized reseller of Cambridge Sound Management, c2mtech configured the QT-600 which is designed for large multi-zone spaces. System settings can be easily accessed and controlled from any device. RM-QT Rack Mount Kits were installed to house the QT-600s.

496 Qt Emitters were connected into ceiling tiles using daisy chains. The QT Emitter is a speaker with wide dispersion (nearly 180 degrees), smaller than a coffee mug. This innovative speaker delivers four separate audio channels of uniform, unobtrusive sound masking. Operation is a breeze, volume can be adjusted by 3 dB decrements for easy microzoning.

After installation, c2mtech configured, labeled and tested the entire sound masking system.

Now that Medpace’s DFW operation can easily control its sound environment and keep employees focused, it can zero in on the core mission: accelerating safe and effective medical treatments into the future.
