A noise survey represents the foundation on which any noise assessment is based. In the first instance, the placement of measurement equipment is the key consideration.
Our consultants have years of experience in the field, applying this knowledge for the most robust assessments.
We prioritise early consultation with local authorities so agree the specifics of any noise survey in writing. Consequently, high quality, reliable results ensure no post-submission issues for our clients.
We utilise leading proprietary noise modelling software to provide quick feedback on design iterations and layouts. Our consultants have a wealth of experience in complex, cumulative scenarios and can advise on the apportioning of noise limits, available headroom and site feasibility.
Specialist in-house modelling software developed by our expert consultants affords further insight into site analysis, including the application of wind shear corrections, line-of-sight attenuation and consideration of valley effects in accordance with the latest guidance.
Our automated in-house software developed specifically for wind turbine assessment provides rapid analysis of measured baseline noise, wind speed and rain data.
The efficiency of our system allows critical survey decisions to be made on site, reducing survey lengths and providing immediate feedback on turbine shutdown conditions where applicable.
As a result of our tried and tested software developed over many years, analysis of data is subject to the highest quality assurance, delivering results which are unquestionably robust and reliable.
Where required, we have full capability to undertake the analysis and assessment of Tonality and Amplitude Modulation with regard to either scheduled compliance assessment or complaint driven investigation.
Our state-of-the-art noise monitoring equipment provides full fidelity recording (24 bit, 48 kHz) for full post-measurement waveform analysis. Due to the complexity of both Tonal and Amplitude Modulation analysis, specially developed in-house software automates the process, delivering quality assured, timely results.
