Our Capabilities

Here you can view examples of our capabilities and some of the services we provide.

Noise & Vibration Monitoring

We supply attended and unattended noise & vibration monitoring options from a range of audio enabled Class 1 sound level meters and tri-axial vibration monitors fitted with GSM modems for trigger alerts & remote access.

  • Vibration Monitoring
  • Noise Monitoring
  • Remote Access, SMS & Email alerts

Acoustic Assessments & Planning

Planning authorities may require a noise/vibration assessment as part of the planning process. We advise applicants, agents and authorities on noise in the context of relevant policy across England & Wales.

  • Acoustic Assessments
  • Noise & Vibration Report
  • Acoustic Reports: BS 8233, BS 4142

Acoustic Software Modelling

Software modelling allows the user to evaluate a variety of calculation based options for a range of theoretical scenarios. Our extensive library of calculation software allows us to identify any mitigation requirements quickly and in detail.

  • SoundPLAN®
  • Odeon A/S
  • INSULâ„¢

Acoustic Design of Buildings

The design of rooms for specific uses is driven by an understanding sound will behave in a space based on its geometry and the absorptive effects of the different surfaces

  • Sound Insulation
  • Control of Reverberation
  • Speech Intelligibility

Construction Noise & Vibration

Noise from construction/demolition sites can give rise to complaint which can be avoided by calculating the cumulative levels from multiple sources and applying suitable mitigation.

  • Noise & Vibration Monitoring
  • Cumulative Level Prediction
  • Best Practicable Means

Occupational Noise Exposure

The Control of Noise at Work Regulations place a series of duties on employers and employees designed to ensure legal limits on exposure are not exceeded.

  • Workplace Noise Assessment
  • Identifying Hearing Protection Zones
  • Personal Hearing Protection (PHP)

BREEAM

BREEAM is a credit-based assessment system for buildings which may be used for education, healthcare, residential & non-residential use (such as office, industrial & court buildings).

  • Suitably Qualified Acoustician (SQA)
  • Hea 05 Acoustic Performance
  • Pol 05 Reduction of Noise Pollution

Transportation Noise

The primary noise source affecting residential premises in the UK is transport noise which is considered where a new scheme is proposed or new development is to be located nearby.

  • Calculation of Road Traffic Noise
  • Calculation of Rail Noise
  • Design Manual For Roads and Bridges

Entertainment Noise

Noise control for concerts involves setting limits and carrying out sound propagation tests prior to the event so levels can be set & controlled from the Front of House.

  • Sound Propagation Tests
  • Event Monitoring
  • Licence Applications

Ground & Structureborne Vibration

Sound is a form of vibration, although vibration is usually interpreted as being either groundborne or structureborne. Vibration may also be re-radiated as audible sound.

  • Vibration Measurement
  • Construction/Demolition Vibration
  • Vibration Exposure/Cosmetic Damage

Industrial Sound & BS 4142:2014

Commercial/industrial sound is assessed using BS:4142, for the purpose of investigating complaints, or where a industrial/commercial sound may impact new or existing dwellings.

Noise Control Engineering

Noise Control Engineering is concerned with limiting the level of sound transmitted by a source by taking into account the mechanisms by which it is produced and transmitted.

  • Fans and Ventilation Systems
  • In Duct Attenuation
  • Silencers, Louvres and Exhausts
