Regardless of the project size or location, unwanted outdoor noise can be a significant issue. During construction, this can manifest as noise impacting neighbors or building occupants. Either way, it’s critical to analyze environmental noise impact for your project.
Existing ambient site noise levels should be measured to determine the required windows and building envelope based on a project’s noise goals. Sometimes, in busy urban environments, this may also require the need for comprehensive modeling of noise – from motor traffic, nearby rail lines, or even airplane flyovers.
Most buildings and projects are required to meet local noise ordinances and best practices include documenting the potential impact of your project on the community.
Our engineers are experts in measuring, analyzing, and predicting noise impacts and can offer cost-effective solutions for mitigating environmental noise.
