We provide expert evidence in the field of acoustics, and our technical staff and associate consultants have given evidence in both civil and criminal cases.

We undertake assessments for both outline and detailed applications and provide environmental noise & vibration surveys, software modelling and advice on calculation based control measures where noise and/or vibration are determining factors.
