what we do
Noise assessments are often required in connection with planning or licensing applications, or where there have been complaints about noise. We have very wide experience in all types of noise assessment.
Acoustic design is a key part of almost every acoustic consultancy project. We have decades of experience extending across many sectors and applications.
Noise and/or vibration is often a key concern of the local authority when considering planning and licensing applications. We have worked on thousands of applications across a huge range of developments.
Noise monitoring is central to most acoustic consultancy projects. This means that we have very wide experience in the field and we can apply this expertise to help you reach your goals.
Sound insulation testing is a requirement of Part E of the Building Regulations. We are approved under the Association of Noise Consultants Registration Scheme and, since 2003, we have carried out over 5,000 tests.
Noise and vibration usually need to be considered for large developments. This includes assessment of impact during construction and operational phases. We have experience working on EIAs for many types of development.
Exposure to high levels of noise at work can lead to permanent hearing damage for employees. We can help you identify the risks and advise on control measures.
Ventilation, heating/cooling and other services have the potential to cause noise issues within buildings being served or at adjacent noise sensitive premises. We can assess and advise on measures to control noise.
Noise mapping can be an extremely useful tool to quickly and effectively identify noise problems and solutions. We have been at the forefront of developing expertise and accuracy in the field for over 15 years.
Vibration must be considered in situations such as where development is proposed near a railway line, or if new sensitive equipment is to be installed. We can help you identify and address the risks and constraints.
We have highly experienced consultants able to answer your questions, help prepare evidence and appear as an Expert Witness on your behalf at Public Inquiries or court hearings.
Acoustic research helps to develop knowledge and understanding in the field. We have carried out a range of research projects for private companies, local authorities and central government since the early 1990s.
