Sol Acoustics carries out noise surveys both at home and abroad in accordance with British Standards and Local Authority requirements.

The measurement of external environmental noise levels is a fundamental requirement for many building types, in order to determine the prevailing levels of noise able to impact upon on a proposed Development or to determine the existing background levels of noise at nearby sensitive receptors.

Where appropriate, environmental noise limits for building services plant and for construction activities are established in accordance with guidance given in BS 4142: 1997, BREEAM and BS 5228: 2009+A1:2014.

Sol Acoustics has contributed to Environmental Impact Assessments for many large-scale Developments to ensure that the external acoustic environment is not adversely affected.
