Our Team is comprised of diversely talented individuals with a shared passion for acoustical design. Our experience ranges from interior design, to project management, to business administration. We pride ourselves on our unique fit and our ability to adapt our solutions to the specific needs of each of our clients.
We are innovators at heart with a relentless drive to achieve our goal of redefining convention when it comes to architectural design.
Acoustic design is so much more than simple sound control. It's a new way to think of a space's composition in a way that makes sense functionally, while also considering visual and auditory elements.
We want to work with you! Whether you're an architect, a developer, a business owner, or just a person who wants to take control of their space's acoustics, we want to help. We have 50+ years of industry experience and we are completely dedicated to improving your life with simple solutions that won't break your budget.
Patty Gaus - Owner and Founder
Patty is the founder and fearless leader of Gaus Acoustics. She heads the sales effort, runs the day-to-day business operations, and still finds time to attend every industry event and put on educational seminars to boot.
Patty saw a massive need for sound control in the places she worked, as well as the places she visited in her free time. She started Gaus Acoustics with her husband Tom, initially providing noise dampening for the HVAC products that he sold, but it didn't take long for the business to grow and expand its services.
If you've ever met Patty, the first thing that will strike you is her clear passion for her occupation. She is bursting with in-depth knowledge that she can't help but spread like wild fire. Check out her previous projects and you might guess that she has years of experience in Interior design. Nobody in the industry pairs the level of acoustical knowledge with an eye for design quite like she does.

Tom Gaus - Owner of GausScott Co.
Phone: (314) 406-2379
Tom Gaus has owned and operated GausScott company for over 20 years, guiding the company through the worst recession since The Great Depression, and bringing it out the other side stronger than ever before.
The projects that he has worked on range from Busch stadium, to Barnes Jewish Hospital, to Lambert Airport. He is one of the most trusted names in the industry, and has been instrumental to the genesis and growth of Gaus Acoustics.
Tom prides himself on doing business the right way, and creating relationships that make doing business with him a no-brainer. His experience selling HVAC equipment is what drew him to acoustic control, as he found that although the system may function properly by controlling the space's temperature, without the proper noise control, his clients couldn't be completely satisfied.
Tom enjoys attending Cardinals games with his children, and attending all of the incredible music events that St. Louis has to offer.
