We are well-versed in the noise and vibration regulations and ordinances for numerous jurisdictions and government agencies in Canada and the United States. Our experience in architectural acoustics, noise and vibration engineering informs and enhances our regulatory services.
Our environmental noise control services include preparation of noise impact/feasibility statements, environmental noise assessments, Environmental Compliance Approvals (ECAs) for air and noise (formerly known as Certificates of Approval), and design for noise controls. And our environmental vibration-control capabilities include preparation of vibration impact/feasibility statements and design for ground-borne vibration controls.
We model and analyze noise sources and design solutions to reduce the impact of environmental noise on occupants. Controlling community noise is neither simple nor straightforward. The outdoor acoustical environment is highly variable and is influenced by a multitude of noise sources. It also changes depending on the time of day or season, the type of noise and where the listener is located. Transportation, construction and industrial-plant noise, however, are typically the biggest contributors to problematic environmental noise.
We work closely with residential and commercial project teams to assess mechanical equipment, exhaust fans and diesel generator sets, to prepare noise-impact statements and to provide special design to mitigate exterior noise sources such as aircraft, railways and road traffic.
Our industrial noise control services offer noise and vibration control for machinery in factories, assembly lines, manufacturers and printing plants. We also provide occupational health and safety analysis for hearing loss according to OSHA guidelines.
Our acoustical engineers are experienced in helping clients meet regulatory restrictions on vibration during construction phase through our construction vibration assessment and monitoring services.
