E2 Consultants in Bristol offer an extensive range of services in relation to the measurement and prediction of noise within two primary sectors: Environmental Acoustics and Building and Architectural Acoustics.
More people are affected by noise from transportation sources than any other. For road, rail and air transport, there are established and recommended methods for predicting the noise. E2 Consultants provides all necessary measurements, assessments and technical capability to support the noise and vibration input into an Environmental Statement.
Environmental noise is a major issue in most countries, especially in areas of high population, and the sources of noise and their adverse effects on our well-being are varied. The typical noise sources are from Industrial Sites, Construction work, Road Traffic, Animals, Aircraft and entertainment venues. All of these noises can have different characteristics such as Continuous, Intermittent, Broadband and Tonal.
There is a number of different assessment and standards available:
- Road Traffic noise assessments and Railway Noise Assessments
- Environmental noise studies for major housing schemes
- Industrial Noise (BS4142) Assessments
- Assessment and monitoring of quarries and construction sites
- New Road Scheme
Domestic BS4142 are normally requested by a Planning Officer or E.H.O (Environmental Health Officer) due to concerns of increased noise from a noise source located or proposed to be located near residential properties, they are applied for in a planning application to the local authority (Council). The type of noise source could be a proposed mechanical noise e.g. Fans, Air Conditioning Systems, Generators etc.
Our reports clearly demonstrate measured sound levels experienced at the development site which are then compared against British Standards (BS 8233, BS5228 etc), World Health Organisation Standards and the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) to determine acceptability of the measured noise levels.
Where mitigation measures are required to reduce noise to an acceptable level these are discussed and agreed with the Design Team, and then incorporated into the report.
Our range of services in Bristol within the environmental acoustics sector includes:
- Industrial, commercial and retail noise assessment, prediction and control.
- Liaison with the local planning authority and environmental health departments to determine relevant noise criteria.
- Traffic, railway and airport noise assessment, prediction and control.
- Noise monitoring at existing sites to determine compliance with planning and operational conditions.
- Noise and vibration surveys and assessments to characterise a site's ambient climate for planning applications.
- Environmental noise impact assessments.
There are many different reasons why a noise survey may be required. You can call E2 Consultants to discuss your project with an acoustic consultant for free without obligation. With your permission we can then speak to the council to confirm a proposal for the survey. At E2 Consultants we believe that the key to a smooth transition through the planning process is communication, both with our clients and Local Authorities.
We believe that our Domestic BS4142 testing & Environmental Noise consultants service delivery across the UK is second to none and that clients retain our expert services because of our continuous commitment to providing high quality and cost effective advice.
