NCAC is pleased to announce the 2019 Laymon N. Miller Award will be presented to Tony Hoover (McKay Conant Hoover) on Friday, September 13, 2019 at the opening reception of the NCAC Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA.

The Laymon N. Miller Award is presented annually to an individual who has practiced acoustical consulting in an exemplary manner over a sustained period of time to improve acoustical environments in and around buildings, transportation systems, work places, recreational and other occupied spaces such that the quality of life for citizens and communities is significantly enhanced.

Tony’s contributions include his outstanding career in architectural acoustics, and building and environmental noise. In a career of nearly four decades to date, Tony has been responsible for the design, testing and implementation of acoustics and noise control designs in over 2,000 projects for commercial and institutional buildings. Tony has influenced acoustics standards such as ANSI S12.60, and developed courses for the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) and the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Tony has served NCAC in many capacities including as president, and on various committees. The above barely scratches the surface of Tony’s contributions to NCAC, ASA and the acoustical consulting profession.
