Noise Studies and Assessments


We provide noise studies and assessments for a broad range of clients. We are experienced acousical consultants and have worked on over 300 projects over the last 12 years.


The noise studies we produce usually involve a combination of noise measurements, predictive noise modeling and mitigation design. Using our in-depth understanding of noise and vibration control, we can provide a study or assessment to meet your needs. We frequently work for architects, construction companies, manufacturing plants, equipment builders, city planning departments and individuals. We can help you through your acoustical design work no matter how challenging the project.

Examples of noise and vibration assessments prepared by us include:

  • Noise studies for residential, commercial and industrial developments

  • Noise and vibration control and monitoring plans for construction projects

  • Municipal code compliance noise assessments

  • Environmental Impact Report (EIR) noise studies to CEQA and NEPA requirements

  • Equipment sound and vibration assessments

  • Traffic noise studies

  • Reverberation assessments for offices and restaurants

  •   Our proprietary acoustical software packages allow our acoustical consultants to evaluate noise for a huge variety of situations. With our extensive experience of real-life noise control applications, we feel we offer a service that can't be matched by others.

    Acoustical Consulting

    When contracting us to work on your project, you can be assured that the acoustical consultant assigned to your project has extensive experience in the field. We work in a highly specialized field and believe in hiring only the very best acoustical consultants to perform noise studies and manage monitoring projects. When it comes to acoustics and noise control, there is little we haven't seen before. Call us today to discuss your project's noise or vibration requirements with one of our consultants. We will provide guidance on the services you will need and the best approach to your project. Find out more about our consulting services.

    Interior Acoustic Analysis

    We can provide acoustical assessments of interior spaces and design noise reduction and mitigation solutions for problem areas. Hard reflective surfaces can cause a build-up of reverberant sound within spaces, causing high sound levels and making communication difficult.

    We can perform room acoustic measurements to determine the acoustical characteristics of a space, including reverberation time measurements and sound transmission loss test of partition walls between adjoining spaces. This allows us to determine appropriate reverberation and sound level control measures. We can provide recommendations for specific products and installation guidelines to solve the interior acoustics problem.

    We have solved interior acoustics problems in offices, courtrooms, restaurants and gymnasiums.

    Noise Studies & Monitoring by Industry

    Environmental Noise Studies

    We offer noise studies for residential, commercial and mixed-use developments. We have worked on projects ranging from single residences through to large developments with hundreds of buildings and commercial units. Our engineering staff have expertise in local and state ordinances, noise modeling and building design.

    Our reports have been reviewed by numerous city planning departments. We’re familiar with their expectations and we work with this in mind.

    Residential and Commercial Noise Studies

    We offer noise studies for residential, commercial and mixed-use developments. We have worked on projects ranging from single residences through to large developments with hundreds of buildings and commercial units. Our engineering staff have expertise in local and state ordinances, noise modeling and building design.

    Our work typically involve prediction of exterior and interior sound levels and recommendations for acoustical wall locations and heights, window and door Sound Transmission Class (STC) or Outdoor-Indoor Transmission Class (OITC) ratings, building wall construction requirements. We typically perform a site survey to ensure we are taking all relevant noise sources into account in our analysis. We will provide a report ready for submittal and can assist you through the planning process.

    Construction Noise Studies

    We provide noise assessments and analysis for construction activities. For a typical construction noise study, we will model construction sites and predict noise levels at nearby sensitive uses based on the equipment and construction methods used. After determining compliance with the project specifications or local ordinances, we can specify the methods and mitigation needed to control noise. We typically provide our analysis as part of a Noise Control Plan written to the requirements of the project’s specifications.

    Industrial Noise Studies

    We are experienced in providing noise studies and testing for factories, pump stations, oil and gas processing plant and many other industrial facilities.
    Our engineers are highly qualified acoustical consultants and have completed numerous industrial noise studies and surveys.
    Our work involved measuring employee noise exposure levels to OSHA standards around the 80 machines on the factory floor.
