ARCHITECTURAL AND BUILDING ACOUSTICS:

Control of external and internal noise, privacy and ensuring a suitable acoustic for speech and music are now recognised as important parameters in many building projects, whether commercial, industrial, educational, leisure or residential. Measures to provide sound insulation and optimise the acoustics of spaces are most effectively undertaken at the design stage, or as part of a refurbishment programme. The acoustics of a space is as important as a soundscape that can assist navigation, function, and the aesthetics of a space and the way it is used.

EXPERT WITNESS

Noise from industrial, leisure and domestic activities has become a significant cause for concern, particularly in residential areas. When the planning process cannot be used to prevent disturbance, the law, including Environmental Protection Act and for construction noise, the Control of Pollution Act can be used to control such noise. The use of the Noise Act 1996 and implications of the Live Music Act 2011 and Licensing Act 2003 also provide a patchwork of legislative tools that can be applied to control noise from various sources.
