We undertake wide range of services from planning noise assessments through to noise mitigation proposals. Where it is proposed to install new plant or equipment, we undertake noise surveys to determine noise emission limits, in line with Local Authority requirements, and provide advice on mitigation. As a London based company we have an in depth knowledge on complying with London planning permissions and local legislation. Our engineers are expertly suited to carry out noise assessments, with a wealth of experience in assessing the sound impact of residential, industrial and commercial businesses in the community.

Noise assessments and reports should be submitted during the pre-application process and discussions on planning applications. In many circumstances a planning condition will stipulate that a noise survey will need to be undertaken.

Planning noise surveys are normally carried out at the design stage of the project prior to the commencement of construction, this is to allow the acoustic design of the building to take into account the local noise levels. If the local noise levels are excessive then a more robust acoustic twill need to be adopted to mitigate any potential noise problems. Thereafter the local authority may also require post a BS 8182 London noise survey to prove that the noise standards have been achieved within the living rooms and bedrooms.
