ARCHITECTURAL & 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 adequate sound insulation and optimise the acoustics of spaces for the intended use are most effectively undertaken at the design stage, or as part of a refurbishment programme. The acoustics of a space is also important to assist access for differently-abled people for things like navigation, function, and the aesthetics and comfort of a space and the way it is used.

Expert Witness Law Noise

EXPERT WITNESS

Unwanted sound (Noise) from existing or proposed business, industrial, leisure and domestic activities can become a serious cause for concern, where residential are affected. When the planning or licensing process has not been successful in preventing serious disturbance, legislation such as the Environmental Protection Act 1990, for construction noise, the Control of Pollution Act 1974 can be used to control such noise.  In relation to noise from licensed premises the use of the Noise Act 1996 and implications of the Live Music Act 2011, and ultimately the Licensing Act 2003 also provide a patchwork of legislative tools that can be applied to control noise from various sources.
