What people say

Here are just a few highlights of what our current clients say about us and the service we provide.

“My client was faced with an application for a Noise Abatement Notice which was heard in the Magistrates Court and, if successful, would have almost certainly closed their business and resulted in the loss of numerous jobs. Peter was recommended by a colleague and he was excellent from start to finish. He promptly carried out an assessment of the site and thereafter prepared a comprehensive report in readiness for the trial. However, it was his presence in Court which was even more impressive as he was able to clearly explain why it was that the applicant was incorrect in her assertion that my client was responsible for creating the amount of noise alleged! Highly recommended and would definitely instruct again." 

Dan McNally, Freeths 

"VIP Motocross would like to say a huge thank you to the team at sustainable acoustics for all their help and expert services during our battle with the local authority to prove the noise wasn't an issue at our motocross practice track. With your help we have managed to achieve full planning.  Through the whole process you have acted very professionally and proved a great level of knowledge in this field.  We will be happy to use your services again in the future". 

Andy Parr, VIP Motorcross

"Sustainable Acoustics were engaged to make suitable recommendations to discharge a planning condition, to enable us to convert a commercial premises into residential flats. They clearly won the tendering process with the most competitive price structure and have supported this delivering a comprehensive report in a professional, friendly and informative manner. It has been a pleasure working with them and we would have no hesitation to re-appoint them or to recommending their services".

Martin Appleton. MD. Seco Engineering

"Sustainable Acoustics have helped us to negotiate the difficult waters of controlling noise from the premises to the adjoining sensitive surrounding neighbourhood, giving us the chance to introduce our business to the area. They also then worked with us to create an acoustic environment inside the restaurant which supports conversation, and enhances the quality of the experience which is so important to our customers. We are delighted with the result, which helped us to deliver our vision for quality."

Juan Cruz, Owner, Casa Cruz

"The assessment of reverberation time and advice on acoustic panels has enabled a discrete installation in a sensitive manner. It has proved to have immediate acoustic benefits and allayed the fears of a number of members of the congregation about too much deadening of the sound. Speech is now much more intelligible and the qualities of the choir are more discernible. A fantastic improvement".
