Noise Control & Acoustics

AVA Acoustics provide specialist consultancy services in Environmental, Building and Industrial noise sectors. The principals use experience in scientific and engineering fields to investigate, report and advise on a range of acoustic situations extending from entertainment noise issues causing nuisance to designing noise containment solutions in buildings. AVA specialists are Institute of Acoustics qualified.

Our assignments have included design of courtrooms, large entertainment centres, multipurpose halls, corporate HQ, music venues and hotels with noise sensitive issues. We provide specialist acoustic advice for EIS (Environmental Impact Statements), Planning Permissions, Court cases, Health and Safety reports and staff training.

AVA work with architects, engineers, interior designers and venue owners and as a member of design teams to design appropriate solutions that will keep sound out of noise sensitive areas such as bedrooms, meeting rooms and dining rooms. Solutions can be provided for noise associated with air handling plants, bottle handling and refrigeration.

We use computer modelling techniques for room acoustics and recommend appropriate acoustic finishes. This is an interactive role as the "sound" of any space will vary widely with room finishes.

Sound emanating from entertainment venues can create environmental noise. Environmental noise issues are subject to daytime and night-time guidelines. Noise cases relating to entertainment venues are very common due to location, times of operation and the nature of the entertainment provided.

AVA recommends inclusion of acoustic design at the outset of projects as retrofit solutions cost considerably more.

Consultation fees are negotiated upon examination of the issues and timescales relevant to the project. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
