Sectors: Environment

Leisure

Noise from leisure activities covers a wide range of sources. Bars, restaurants and night clubs generate noise from people and music, but many other leisure activities require noise assessments, particularly at the planning stage.

Motor sports are obvious sources of noise, but less obvious leisure/sporting activities require noise assessments.

Power and Utilities

Developments in this category can range from a new power station down to a small sub-station or water pump. Noise sources can often operate at any time within the 24 hours, when existing noise levels are at their lowest. Rural locations and sources located externally can add to the noise control challenges.

One particular type of development that usually requires a specific noise assessment is wind farms.  The company is experienced in carrying out assessments to the requirements of ETSU-R-97.

Waste & Recycling

Noise assessments for waste and recycling sites has always been an important part of the workload of Hepworth Acoustics. Obtaining planning consent with suitable conditions is of paramount importance and we assist our clients through the planning process, including providing expert witness services if required.

Minerals

Minerals work has always been an important part of the workload of Hepworth Acoustics. Obtaining planning consent with suitable conditions is of paramount importance and we assist our clients through the planning process, including providing expert witness services if required.

Transport

Transportation is the largest source of environmental noise in the world today. New transportation schemes can generate significant levels of noise over large areas, whether they are road, rail or airport schemes. The company has many years of experience of dealing with major transportation schemes and carrying out the detailed noise and vibration assessments required for complex infrastructure schemes. This work has included dealing with public exhibition and public inquiry work as well as the technical assessments.
