Interview with Marina Rodrigues, Head of Marketing & Product Management at CDM Stravitec.

Easy Engineering: A brief description of the company and its activities.

Marina Rodrigues: Established in 1951, CDM Stravitec’s reputation is built on a passion for solving noise and vibration problems, a professional approach, technical excellence, customer service, and, most of all, our people. Our clients rely on decades of experience and trust us to bring the right solution to every project we undertake.

With locations in North America, Europe, and Asia, CDM Stravitec is well-positioned to handle projects globally. No matter where you are, CDM Stravitec provides excellent customer service, engineered solutions, and on-site performance. The diversity of our multilingual staff provides an ideal creative source for understanding technical, practical, local, and cultural considerations. Hundreds of completed projects in more than 50 countries testify to our customer satisfaction.

Our highly qualified team of engineers has a thorough understanding of the properties of sound generation, propagation, and its effects. They use sophisticated calculation software to predict system performance and provide detailed drawings and installation plans for each project. Because of this, clients welcome us working closely with them and their project teams.

CDM Stravitec’s ongoing R&D program continuously expands the understanding of raw materials. Continuous investment in acoustical and mechanical property testing (in-house testing) allows us to provide material science and test reports for many applications. Collaboration with leading international universities and testing institutes enables us to develop high-performing acoustical solutions for tomorrow.

How well an acoustic solution performs largely depends on the quality and care taken during installation (eliminating possible mechanical bridging and noise flanking). By overseeing installation and addressing any issues that may occur, we can provide the necessary warranties, giving you complete peace of mind.

E.E: What are the main areas of activity of the company?

M.R: Structural Isolation

CDM Stravitec provides vibration control solutions to protect buildings from structure-borne noise and vibration through the elastic decoupling of the building structure. This ensures that vibrations from external sources, such as traffic or machinery, do not disrupt the integrity or comfort of the building.

Building Acoustics

Our company also focuses on the elastic decoupling of floors, walls, and ceilings to reduce the transmission of impact and airborne noise caused by internal or external sources. This approach improves the acoustic comfort within buildings, enhancing living and working environments.

Brands and Innovations

CDM Stravitec operates in these two main areas, Structural Isolation and Building Acoustics, under six distinct brands: Stravibase, Stravifloor, Stravigym, Stravimech, Stravilink, and Straviwood. 

Each brand addresses specific aspects of noise and vibration isolation:

  • Stravibase: Building base isolation & structural fixations
  • Stravifloor: High-performance floating floors
  • Stravigym: Lightweight isolated gym floating floors
  • Stravimech: Solutions for building service & mechanical equipment
  • Stravilink: Wall & ceiling elastic decoupling
  • Straviwood: Solutions to acoustically decouple CLT walls, floors & ceilings

The launch of Straviwood in 2023, highlights CDM Stravitec’s commitment to sustainability, addressing the growing demand for environmentally friendly building solutions.

E.E: At what stage is the market where you are currently active?

M.R: In line with current market trends, CDM Stravitec’s vision is deeply rooted in sustainability and the growing trend of timber construction. Our company recognizes the importance of sustainable practices in the construction industry and is dedicated to developing solutions that meet these needs.

By focusing on innovative noise and vibration isolation systems and sustainable building practices, CDM Stravitec continues to lead the industry, ensuring that their solutions not only meet current demands but also pave the way for a more sustainable future in construction.
