Assessment of Industrial Noise in Residential Areas

The assessment, normally outside of a nearby residential or other noise sensitive premises, of noise of an industrial nature is necessary wherever there is an adjacency or potential adjacency of residential and industrial land uses. Such adjacency can lead to a potentially excessive noise impact upon residential amenity.

AAD are experienced in making assessments by measurement of industrial noise emissions affecting mixed residential and industrial land use areas; we are also experienced in the design of noise mitigating measures suitable for a wide range of industries. Many of our consultants are experienced in making expert testimony and have participated in judicial reviews ranging from Magistrate's Court hearings to Public Inquiry.
