Environmental Noise Surveys

Our Acoustic Consultants understand the importance of limiting noise pollution, to a suitable level. Environmental Noise Surveys are completed to ensure that individuals can live without exposure to harmful, unwanted sound.

Environmental Noise refers to unwanted sound generated in areas surrounding residential dwellings or living spaces. It can include noise from surrounding properties, industrial noise, or transportation noise (such as roads, airports or trainlines), as such, it is a major issue within urban areas.

Environmental Noise Surveys are often a requirement to gain planning permission when constructing new residential dwellings to ensure that the new living spaces will not be adversely impacted by surrounding noise sources. Our consultants can carry out Environmental Noise Surveys to the relevant British Standards, depending on the project requirements.

Environmental Noise is often compared to occupational noise which refers to unwanted sounds encountered in the workplace.
