Knowledge Centre Sound Insulation

Lucas Keizer is the Director of Knowledge Centre Sound Insulation (KGI) and president of the Foundation Quiet hotelrooms®

He is based in the firm’s Amsterdam office, where he is in charge of Research Services.Together with several knowledge partners, KGI set up an innovation team which has developed a number of sound insulation systems specifically geared to hotels.

Putting together all this information, we have developed a sound measuring technique which allows us to measure the sound insulation level of individual hotels rooms as well as of hotels as a whole. We have tested many rooms with this technique and this has led to the Quiet Room classification system. We are now able to classify hotel rooms into several sound insulation categories based on the specific QR-conditions. If necessary, we can upgrade hotel rooms into a higher category with the implementation of our dedicated sound insulation systems.

Lucas Keizer started the Knowledge centre sound insulation in 2009 and created the Quiet Room label with Quiet Hotel Awards in 2014.

Mr. Keizer has worked with many of the world’s leading hospitality companies, such as IHG, Hilton, Starwood and Marriott. The company has assisted hundreds of luxury independent and branded hotels throughout the world, providing with the Quietroom label and Soundproof solutions.

He completed his Bachelor Acoustics engineer and his Executive MBA from Amsterdam School of Business.

Hotel Spa: Measuring the Results
As the Hotel Spa and Wellness Movement continues to flourish, spa operations are seeking new and innovative ways to expand their menu of services to attract even more people to their facilities, and to and measure the results of spa treatments. Whether it’s spa, fitness, wellness meet guest expectations. Among new developments, there seems to be a growing emphasis on science to define or beauty services, guests are becoming increasingly careful about what they ingest, inhale or put on their skin, and they are requesting scientific data on the treatments they receive. They are open to exploring the benefits of alternative therapies – like brain fitness exercises, electro-magnetic treatments, and chromotherapy – but only if they have been validated scientifically. Similarly, some spas are integrating select medical services and procedures into their operations, continuing the convergence of hotel spas with the medical world. Parents are also increasingly concerned about the health and well-being of their children and are willing to devote time and money to overcome their poor diets, constant stress, and hours spent hunched over computer, tablet and smartphone screens. Parents are investing in wellness-centric family vacations; yoga and massage for kids; mindfulness and meditation classes; and healthy, locally sourced, organic food. For hotel spas, this trend represents a significant area for future growth. Other trends include the proliferation of Wellness Festivals which celebrate health and well-being, and position hotel spas front and center. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
