Building acoustics

We provide a complete professional service in which we take responsibility for all aspects of the acoustic performance of a building. We adopt a pragmatic approach, providing information and options so that the client and other consultants can make informed decisions.

Environmental noise

We set out clearly the impact of noise on people in their homes and other sensitive places so that an informed decision can be made as to whether a development is feasible and what mitigation is required.

Measurement and monitoring

We carry out measurements of sound insulation in dwellings and elsewhere, and have technical staff registered under the ANC scheme for pre-completion sound insulation testing (PCT) which is required for all BREEAM testing under Hea13 and for building warrant applications made on or after May 1, 2011, for flats and maisonettes and on or after October 1, 2011, for houses and conversions as required by Section 5 of the Building (Scotland) Regulations. We also provide monitoring services in areas such as construction noise, traffic noise and background noise.

Wind farm

Expert witness

We provide expert witness in the Sheriff Court and Court of Session and for Planning Inquiries. Evidence covers a range of subjects including noise nuisance and industrial deafness cases and a range of development types including wind farms and housing.

Planning proposals

Planning submissions

We work with clients to carry out noise impact assessments and advise them on how to lessen the impact of their development as part of their planning submission.

a professional service

We are members of the leading professional bodies in our field, including the Federation of Small Businesses, Constructionline, Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and Institute of Acoustics (IOA).
