Our Sustainable Projects

Our consultants are professional and experienced individuals with a passion for design and a desire to plan for a sustainable future. We believe in providing a service based on excellent acoustic advice and high standards, and doing so in a way that values our staff’s expertise and rises to the challenges of our clients, but does not undermine the chances of future generations.  All our staff have either Bachelors degrees or Masters, and are either an Associate, Member or Fellow of the Institute of Acoustics.
