technical consulting for architectural, environmental &
industrial noise control
We can help you find realistic,
practical, and cost-effective solutions to your noise or vibration
problems. Our clients include building owners, architects, engineers,
project operators, and public agencies. We have worked on a wide variety
of project types, and worked at all project phases -- initial planning, design,
final commissioning, and remedial repairs for existing projects.
During the design of a
new project, the main goal is prevention of noise problems, or the control of
noise inherent in the project. The acoustical consultant is the one
person on the design team that has an overview of noise issues, and works
across the design disciplines to help solve the problem. We also do remedial
work, finding the best way to fix existing noise and vibration problems.
It is usually much easier and less expensive to think ahead and avoid a
problem, rather than fixing it after the fact.

There are many noise control myths out there -- heed the conventional wisdom with a grain of salt. If the solution were really as simple as "gluing up some ceiling tiles" or "spraying some foam inside the wall", you probably would not have a noise problem in the first place.
