Environmental Noise Assessment
Environmental acoustics can become an issue when looking to build or extend a commercial, industrial, leisure or residential facility. Planning permission will be dependent upon meeting the requirements set out in national and international regulations.
With our knowledge of acoustics, noise assessment, regulations and advanced computer modelling, we can offer a full package to allow your facility to achieve compliance in respect of any acoustic requirements and win that planning application.
