Entertainment Noise Control

At NMS, we can provide event noise analysis and mitigation measure recommendations.


When regulatory agencies do not have noise standards for event related noise levels, noise level limits would be proposed based on ambient sound levels and human sensitivity to noise during the event hours. We can evaluate event related noise impacts on nearby noise sensitive uses. For planned events we can predict impacts using event noise levels obtained from mock events, similar or current events, and reference data from noise study reports. When significant impacts are identified various mitigation measures can be proposed including noise barriers, limits on operational hours and real-time noise monitoring, etc.

Events include fund raising and charity events, private parties, public and community events, weddings and receptions, corporate parties, outdoor conferences, educational events, and even amusement parks. Noise from live bands is very noisy with sound levels of 130 dBA and we're happy to help accommodate any and all our clients noise concerns.

We also service the film industry providing accurate measurements, modelling, and mitigation options to meet our clients needs.
