Enhancing your projects with expert acoustic design

Noise is an unwanted sound. Noise and vibration can have detrimental effects on human health and well-being and be harmful to wildlife.

Addressing these challenges early in the planning stage of any development is vital to minimising negative health impacts and gaining approval for your project. This is where expert acoustic design and mitigation strategies come into play.

Led by Simon Urquhart, Director for Acoustics and Air Quality, our team offers comprehensive acoustic, noise, and vibration services across various sectors including property, energy, renewables and transport. We provide end-to-end solutions to address these challenges throughout a project's lifecycle. Whether you need support at the planning stage, compliance testing, or ongoing monitoring, we are here to help.
