From our geographically central location, Soundscape Engineering LLC's acoustical consultants and noise and vibration control engineers serve clients located throughout North America - in Chicago, Illinois; Detroit, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Ann Arbor, and Petoskey, Michigan; Milwaukee and Madison Wisconsin; Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, South Bend, and Northwest Indiana; Los Angeles, California; Vancouver, British Columbia; Dayton and Cincinnati Ohio, Winnipeg Manitoba; Saskatoon and Regina Saskatchewan; and elsewhere. Our engineers consult on issues of room acoustics, sound isolation, speech privacy, HVAC noise control, building vibration, and exterior noise impact. They also provide acoustic and vibration measurement services.

Soundscape Engineering provides measurement services to assess ground-borne and building structure-borne vibration.

We measure vibration generated by transportation, machinery, and people. We evaluate vibration levels to support siting decisions for high-resolution imaging equipment to be located in hospitals and research laboratories.

For vibration sensitive laboratory and imaging equipment we can evaluate vibration with respect to the generic NIST and Vibration Criteria (VC) curves and with respect to equipment manufacturers' specific requirements.

We can perform long term monitoring of vibration induced by construction activities near hospitals, research facilities, and other vibration sensitive buildings and set our monitoring systems to provide automatic notification when preset vibration levels are exceeded.  We can also provide long term monitoring of ground-borne vibration caused by blasting and evaluate the levels against U.S. Bureau of Mines criteria.

We measure vibration levels to assess complaints about impact on human comfort, evaluating results against standards such as the following:

  • ANSI S3.29 Guide to the Evaluation of Human Exposure to Vibration in Buildings
  • ISO 2631-2 Mechanical vibration and shock - Evaluation of human exposure to whole-body vibration - Part 2: Vibration in buildings (1 Hz to 80 Hz)
