A noise study is conducted when a project that has sound level issues needs assessment and improvement. An acoustical consultant is hired to use a precisely calibrated sound level meter in order to identify the source and and determine sound level of the noise in question. A noise study is an important tool for projects because they accurately determine what the best and most cost efficient course of action would be to mitigate, or reduce, the noise level of a given project.
Often times the best course of action for a project is to conduct a noise study prior to the start work date. This ensures that noise issues are addressed before they become a problem for the surrounding community and thus a problem for the project. It can be costly and detrimental to a project when it is out of compliance with the local noise ordinance and can even result in the project being halted temporarily, or far worse, indefinitely. The proactive approach in conducting the noise study prior can save a project from issues that might be a detriment to its schedule.
Noise Monitoring Services has experience in all industries that can benefit from a noise study. Oil & gas, mining, entertainment, commercial and residential construction, and many others can all be assessed prior or during the course of a project. There are many solutions that can be implemented to mitigate noise levels, one of which being acoustical barriers or noise blankets. Echo Noise Control, for example, offers a temporary construction blanket that can be easily mounted on any existing fence. This is a cost effective and convenient solution to the noise problem
