ENVIRONMENTAL NOISE TESTING AND MONITORING
Do you need to know acceptable noise levels in your new development, wind turbine, railway or road?
Let us do the hard work for you. We’re on hand to offer expert advice on planning applications, permits and industrial noise complaints.

If you require environmental noise monitoring, usually through a BS4142 assessment, we can even trouble shoot to pin point specific noise issues for you. The acoustic camera allows you to see the level of noise from different directions, so we can pinpoint exactly where it coming from, saving you time and money. We even check noise frequency as well as noise levels.

Using CadnaA, benefit from the leading software for calculation, assessment and prediction of existing or potential noise impact. We compare our work with relevant British Standards and World Health Organisation guidelines and can give you expert advice on your next steps.

SOUND INSULATION TESTING
For your pre-completion sound insulation testing you can be confident that our results are reliable, UKAS accredited and will be accepted by all regulatory bodies.

Our acoustic consultants have considerable experience in conducting airborne and impact sound testing to satisfy Building Regulations requirements, and are familiar with most types of building design. Wireless sound insulation testing equipment allows us to provide an efficient service with next-day reporting often possible.

Approved Document E 'Resistance to the Passage of Sound' of the Building Regulations was revised in 2003 and amended in 2004, including a requirement to carry out pre-completion sound insulation tests on party walls and floors in a number of situations. This is currently only applicable to England & Wales, but similar regulations apply in other parts of the UK.

Members of the Institute of Acoustics, our accredited professionals offer a comprehensive, nationwide service making us the sound choice for environmental noise measurement and assessments.
