What do our clients say?

“David Cawley was the lead acoustic consultant for the new Student Centre at UCD.  He completed the acoustic design for the project and also ensured that good practice was carried out on-site during construction where his wealth of knowledge and practical experience was invaluable. The result is an extremely successful acoustic solution for a complex, challenging project, which addresses the aesthetic design intent and the actual end use of the spaces in practice, both individually and together in an overall facility. I look forward to future collaborations with Allegro Acoustics” – John Thompson, Director, FKP Architects.

“Allegro Acoustics have provided a fantastic, client focused service for a number of projects on the UCD campus to include the new Student Centre and Music Rooms amongst others. We have found David to be highly informative and up to date in his area of expertise” – Dominic O’Keeffe, UCD Student Centre Manager.
