Quiet Mark/ Martin Rawlins - Head of UK & Australia Sales at BASWA acoustic

In Episode 7, Pt.1 of The Quiet Mark Podcast, introducing our audio resource book for architects, Simon Gosling talks with Martin Rawlins - Head of UK & Australia Sales at BASWA acoustic whose Quiet Mark certified products enable architects to improve the acoustics and sound design of buildings, without compromising on the visual aesthetic.

BASWA acoustic AG is a young and dynamic company with an international profile. Hans “Jeannot” Sulzer, who was sixty at the time, established it in 1991. From the start, the company pursued the goal of manufacturing and distributing innovative acoustics products. As a tireless and ambitious entrepreneur and pioneer with a high affinity for technology, Hans Sulzer invented and developed the BASWA acoustics system. He knew from the beginning that as an enterprise, BASWA would take an unconventional path to success and would find innovative new solutions for familiar problems.

Martin is head of UK sales for BASWA acoustic. Martin has a deep interest in sound and was previously a music producer and recording engineer, spending seven years in China recording everything from punk and indie bands to traditional Guzheng, and a Grammy winning singer songwriter.

With BASWA, Martin now spends his time working with architects to enhance the user experience by improving interior acoustics, and has worked on projects including the new United States London Embassy, the Lanesborough Hotel and the V&A.

BASWA acoustic's system is listed within Quiet Mark's Acoustic Academy: a brand new, free to use online platform, designed to further equip and empower architects, builders and designers with a guide to expertly verified leading acoustic solutions for every building application area including; approved specialist acoustic glazing, sound barriers, panels, pumps, acoustic doors, flooring, insulation, commercial ventilation, acoustic plasters and surfaces and much more. 

Example building application areas include, residential, commercial, industrial, schools, offices, healthcare, hospitals, restaurants and public spaces.

Poppy Szkiler, Founder and CEO, Quiet Mark says: “Acoustics Academy is our new online platform developed to serve the Building sector by further equipping and empowering industry to easily find the latest expert-approved acoustic materials, products and solutions organised in a one-stop online hub for the right building applications and scenarios.
“Building design is now evolving to prioritise responsible sound-design transforming living spaces into harmonious soundscapes that deliver excellent acoustics to support health, well-being and desire for quieter living. A property that has been carefully designed acoustically creates a beautiful, calm, supportive environment, reducing unnecessary stress for all inhabitants for generations to come.”
