Environmental Noise Assessment
In addition to our work on interior acoustical environments, Soundscape Engineering provides assessment and prediction of noise and vibration in the outdoor environment. We review proposed projects with respect to local, state, and national noise impact criteria. We monitor noise or vibration levels at proposed project sites and near existing facilities. We prepare impact reports and present results at community meetings. Our consultants have worked with municipalities to monitor and assess noise and vibration produced by heavy industry located within their jurisdiction, they have worked with industry to assess noise and vibration emissions and determine mitigation options. They are accustomed to working on high profile projects with community activism and media coverage.
Our consultants have provided environmental noise or vibration assessment for myriad project types, including the following:
- oil drilling facilities
- manufacturing plants
- grocery stores
- theme parks
- mission critical facility energy plants
- metal shredders
- airport expansions
- HUD developments (to determine suitability of sites near rail, road, and air traffic)
- schools (to determine improvements needed to mitigate aircraft and freeway noise)
- outdoor concert venues
- auto and bus traffic associated with proposed high-rises, museums, and large residential developments
We do not provide project descriptions or names of specific environmental noise and vibration assessment projects on this website. Please contact us to learn more about our experience and to discuss our services.
