Noise control and prevention is an essential part of modern development.  In order to protect people from the ingress of noise, sound levels need to be controlled from neighbours, both nearby and at a distance.  For many proposals to be able to leave the drawing board, it is a Statutory or planning requirement to undertake a noise assessment.

 

Curload Consultants can help.  Our experienced staff can prepare noise reports for planning submissions or Environmental Impact Assessments.  We can then assist with the acoustics within the development, whether this is noise control within a factory, sound insulation for a new residential development or working with the architects to enhance the acoustic within an auditorium.
