Noise Impact Assessments
Noise is defined as unwanted sound and can be a major detriment to a home owners quality of life.
There are many reasons why a noise impact assessment might be needed, from a business extending its opening hours, to a new residential development. In either case, it is important for those involved to understand the impact that their project will have on the surrounding environment and vice versa!
Noise assessments are often necessary as part of planning applications, or can form part of Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) for larger scale developments.
Services We Offer
There are a number of different services that we offer in relation to noise impact, including:
- Background Noise Surveys - A measurement of existing noise levels at and around the proposed development site
- BS4142 Assessments - These predict the impact that a development will have on its surrounding environment
- BS8233 Assessments - These focus on how existing environmental noise might affect a proposed development
- Mitigation Strategy Reports - Based on the results of a noise impact assessment, our team are able to design cost-effective noise mitigation strategies
We always encourage our customers to engage an acoustic consultant at an early stage so that they can liaise with design teams, engineers and planners.
This way, we can ensure that you get the result that you are aiming for.
