Acoustics tackles clients’ problems with a comprehensive range of acoustic
services, based on the national and international experience of highly
experienced acoustics specialists.
For any given project our objective is to prevent noise nuisance. The
firm establishes levels of noise and vibration, compares these to relevant
standards or guidelines such PPG24/WHO and, where necessary,
define appropriate mitigation to provide compliance with the criteria.
We are able to assist on the following:
- Development: We support a number of major developers
with planning applications associated with housing, retail and commercial
sectors. Advice is also given on the development of schools, hospitals,
car parks etc. These types of assessment may include the application
of Planning Policy Guidance 24 (PPG24) ‘Planning & Noise’, WHO guidance
and Building Bulletin 93 (BB93).
