Default Wood floor design

I am putting down a maple engineered wood floor over concrete in a studio.
The two choices are floating or glued down install.
Does anyone have any links to wood floor acoustic design info?

Not sure if these will help;

https://www.pci.org/view_file.cfm?file=AS-08WI-2.pdf

http://www.usg.com/rc/system-catalog...s-en-SA200.pdf

IMHO, if I were undertaking a venture like this I wouldn't be doing it without some serious guidance from a relevant expert (which I am not).

Best of luck, let us know how it goes.

John Sayers forum has just about everything you will ever need to know about building a studio and all that goes with it.

Personally, I would go with the floating floor to further decouple the sound. Plus I've heard a floating floor is easier on the feet.

+1 To both. Also check out the gearslutz acoustics and studio building section. Lots of good info there, and several very qualified people who build/design studios for a living post there regularly.
