Environmental noise assessments are required where there is the potential for impacts to arise on others from your development, or if there are existing environmental sources that impact upon you. Some examples of this are kitchen extract systems, external plant such as condensers and air handling units, building houses by factories and building factories by houses, restaurants, cafes, night clubs, sports facilities - the list is very long.
We work with you, local planning and other regulatory bodies to ensure the appropriate assessments are carried out for planning applications or to discharging acoustic conditions .
Using class 1 sound measurement equipment, we establish baseline noise conditions and observe the acoustic character of the environment through an attended noise survey.
To understand what impacts the existing environment will have on the proposed development, and vice versa, we use nationally and internationally recognised assessment methods such as BS4142.
Where an impact is deemed unfavourable (and where possible), we provide mitigation solutions to minimise the impact in line with relevant guidelines.
