Commercial

Noise from commercial activities covers a wide range of sources. Hospitality busineses such as bars, restaurants and night clubs generate noise from people and music, but many other commercial developments require noise assessments, particularly at the planning stage.

Noise from commercial premises.Mechanical services plant and servicing vehicles often need to be assessed to determine that noise and vibration will not cause significant noise impact (such as re-radiated noise transmitted via the building structure) on existing noise sensitive premises. 

Hotel developments need noise assessments to ensure that environmental noise levels are reduced or controlled to acceptable levels and that adequate sound insulation is provided between bedrooms and other noisy spaces such as kitchens and function rooms.

Hepworth Acoustics has a long history of assessing noise and vibration from commercial activities, both for planning assessments and for ensuring compliance with lease requirements. The company has carried out several hundred noise assessments for commercial developments. This has dealt with all aspects from initial planning applications, through detailing construction details to carrying out compliance measurements and investigating noise complaints.

Our noise and vibration services are provided to all forms of commercial developers and operators and include:

  • Noise surveys for planning applications;
  • Assessing likely source noise levels for new or altered operations;
  • Predicting the potential noise impact of the proposed development;
  • Detailing noise mitigation measures;
  • Provision of comprehensive noise reports to support planning applications;
  • Expert witness services for planning appeals;
  • Assessment of noise complaints and recommendations for remedial measures.
