We provide Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Environmental Impact Report (EIR) noise studies for inclusion National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) studies.
We recognize that noise and vibration problems are best solved in the planning stages of any project. Our work has involved producing noise studies for large community development projects, retail centers, mining sites, and oil and gas development projects.
We are familiar with the EIR/EIS study process. These studies involve defining ‘significance thresholds’ for determining acceptable noise and vibration levels. Various different thresholds may be defined for different aspects of the project depending on the type of noise and vibration source and whether the source is temporary or permanent. Thresholds of significance may be based on local, state or national noise standards, or based on general industry standard levels. With the use of noise calculation and modeling techniques, we can determine whether the project will result in significant impacts and develop recommendations to mitigate problem noise and vibration sources.
We commit to provide our clients with the highest level of service throughout the study development and review process. Call us to discuss you acoustical study needs with one of our highly qualified consultants.
