What is a Noise Consultant?
A noise consultant is a specialist that has extensive knowledge and experience in how to control noise. Noise consultants can be employed by a variety of different industries, however, the majority of noise consultants work in the construction industry.
Noise consultants are often employed by developers and builders to ensure that their building projects meet noise control laws. These laws are in effect to protect the health and wellbeing of those living in proximity to the development.
What do Sound Consultants Do?
Noise Control Solutions Limited are a team of Noise Consultants. But what exactly do we do?
Acoustics is the study of Noise & Vibration, and our services cover all aspects of the topic.
Our Noise Consultants work across many different areas of sound, which allows us to provide expert advice in many areas. Our team have worked in: Product development. Research. Hearing protection. Environmental noise. Building acoustics. Acoustic software design. Audio systems and even vehicle noise.
Noise is the unwanted sound from a variety of sources that can be uncomfortable or annoying, which is why you need the services of noise consultants to keep the peace in your workplace. Noise consultants can be a great asset to business owners that are trying to create an environment where workers can focus and concentrate on getting their jobs done.
If you’re looking for professional acoustic advice then you’ve come to the right place. Noise Control Solutions Limited has years of experience in bespoke noise control and acoustics. From the very start, we’ve been committed to providing the highest quality advice and consultancy services to our customers, on time and on budget.
We begin with an understanding of your needs and objectives. It is important to assess the potential noise problem and then determine the possible solutions that could help solve the problem. We then provide a customised solution that should be both cost effective and provide the maximum results for your solution.
Often, Noise Consultants work in:
- Environmental Noise – protecting the noise environment.
- Building Acoustics – making sure separating walls and floors block out enough sound.
- Noise Control – helping to reduce noise levels.
- Vibration Control – reducing vibration levels.
- Product development – designing products to minimise noise & vibration levels.
- Certification – assessing devices against required legislation (eg sound power).
- Hearing protection – testing & development of hearing protection devices.
- Noise at Work – protecting workers hearing.
- Audio Systems – design of audio systems and live sound.
As you can see, Noise Consultants cover a wide range of activities. You can learn more about our Noise Consultant Services here. Still, the work of acoustic consultants is generally behind the scenes. For example:
- NVH engineers develop your car.
- Noise Engineers test your home for sound insulation.
- Acoustic Consultants assess the white goods you own.
- Your workplace is assessed for Noise to protect your hearing.
Although we don’t notice these things often, the effect of acoustic consultants are all around us.
Whether you’re thinking of moving into a new home or looking to upgrade your existing one, one of the biggest concerns has to be the amount of noise you’ll be exposed to. Whether it’s from a busy road, railway line or airport, or from nearby neighbours, you want to know that it will be a problem before you commit to buying. Thankfully, there are lots of ways to find out exactly what kind of noise you’ll be exposed to.
Notably, the vast majority of the work conducted by us relates to Environmental Noise & Sound Insulation Testing. Generally, building regulations and planning applications require this.
It is worth noting that we are also able to offer many other services relating to noise & vibration – and proud to be able to support our clients in many industries. Contact our acoustic consultants for more information.
Our consultants are chartered Noise Engineers, and corporate members of the Institute of Acoustics. So you can be sure your project is in safe hands.
