Consultant

Aimee Lalime

Aimee focused her career on Acoustics in 2000, when she began her Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering with a Concentration in Acoustics. She worked for NASA Langley to develop an efficient virtual acoustics simulation of structural noise from the space station walls.

After completing her Master’s Degree, Aimee joined Arup Acoustics, working to solve and prevent problems with architectural acoustics, environmental noise, and mechanical systems noise. She conducted measurements, analyzed data, and wrote reports for presentation to clients. 

She continued her career with The Aerospace Corporation, providing support to the Air Force regarding the acoustic, vibration, and shock environments experienced by sensitive equipment during spacecraft launches. During this time, she developed skills in 3D modeling of complex systems to predict vibration and acoustical environments during launch. She also gained experience in digital signal processing of flight data, managing spacecraft testing, and interfacing directly with Air Force clients. 

During her time at The Aerospace Corporation, Aimee also coordinated the SCLV Dynamic Environments Workshop. She planned and managed all aspects of the workshop events, including session content, panel discussions, networking events, and keynote presentations. When joining Soundscape Engineering in 2012, Aimee combined her experience in architectural acoustics and 3D modeling to create 3D computer models of auditoria and meeting spaces. In addition, she has assessed sound isolation issues between hotel and apartment spaces, quantified outdoor environmental noise from mechanical equipment, predicted traffic noise for planned road additions, and designed listening and recording rooms. She has reviewed architectural drawings and planned treatments to meet mechanical noise and reverberation targets in schools, atria, meeting rooms, gymnasiums, and performance spaces.
