What is an acoustic consultant?
Acoustic consultants are people who work with architects, designers, builders and other professionals to help them to solve acoustic problems in buildings, places of worship, concert halls and other venues.
They focus on the design of buildings and spaces to ensure that the intended use of the space can be achieved within the limitations of noise created pre and post construction.
As well as helping to reduce background noise, they may be involved in the design of the building, specifying the materials to be used, or specifying the equipment to be used.
An acoustic consultant is a professional who is trained and certified in the field of acoustics and noise control.

What is an Acoustic Engineer?
An acoustic engineer is an engineer who studies acoustics, acoustical engineering, and sound. Acoustical engineering is the branch of engineering that is involved with the research, design and management of sound, noise and vibration.
Acoustic engineers are typically concerned with three main fields: Industrial acoustics, architectural acoustics and control of noise pollution. Acoustic engineers have traditionally been concerned with the design and application of mechanical systems such as loudspeakers, microphones, and other devices for conversion of acoustic energy into electrical signals.

Noise Impact Assessments
It is no secret that noise is a major issue in today’s world. From the morning alarm to the TV at night, the general background noise of our lives is present at all times. In fact, general background noise is so common that many people do not notice it. However, sometimes noise can become a problem, and a noise impact assessment is needed to determine the cause.
A noise impact assessment is a simple process used by engineers and consultants to determine the noise impact from commercial and industrial sources of noise. Acoustic engineers can also help to find the best way to fix the issue when a significant impact is expected.
We carry out noise impact assessments throughout Manchester and the North West.

Sound Testing in Manchester
Sound testing is the process of identifying the noise reduction of separating walls and floors. This is done by use of expert sound level equipment.
People do not always realise how noise can affect their health, but making sure you are living within noise limits is very important. This is why our experts provide everything you need to ensure yours, your employees and nearby people are the least affected by noise. At Noise Control Solutions Limited we offer sound testing services to local people and businesses for whatever noise concern you may have.
What is Sound Testing?
Sound testing is a process of measuring the noise reduction provided by partitions between dwellings or commercial premises. This testing is required by building regulations and is covered by Approved Document E.
This test measures airborne and impact sound across partitions and shows how this impacts neighbouring premises. However, sound testing is not so easy. You need to consult a sound testing expert in order to conduct the assessment properly.
Type of Sound Testing
There are three types of sound test:
- Airborne wall testing: where the airborne noise reduction of separating walls is assessed.
- Airborne floor testing: assessment of the noise reduction a floor provides to airbone noise.
- Floor impact testing: Measurement of the noise that travels through a floor during impacts (like footfall).
