We are able to provide a range of services, utilising our personnel or other personnel in associated Consulting Practices as well as Specialised Acoustic Contractors. We can provide noise and vibration measurements up to actual turn-key installed noise control installations.
Industrial noise problems present unique problems for each particular industry. We have experience in the design of non-standard noise and vibrational solutions to meet the severest of technical restraints.
Environmental noise modelling of existing whole plants. Field cross-correlation, with ranking and identification of individual noise sources from entire complexes of many hundreds of noise sources. Correction of environmental noise models through field noise and meteorological measurements - fine tuning noise model predictions to the unique micro-climate of each site. Noise modelling of future sites - Fine tuning environmental compliance's before the design leaves the CAD screen or drawing board.
Evaluation of noise contributions in existing or proposed plant layouts with interior 3-D computer building noise modelling using detailed field results. The 3-D interior computer acoustic model is an in-house development tool. Measurement of entire industrial plants and factories - Minimal operator interference effecting production, large savings to clients.
Preparation of complete and enforceable acoustic specifications. Fully integrated with acoustic compliance model.
Long term environmental noise and meteorological monitoring to Environment Protection Authority standards. Extended monitoring programmes - Full assessment of diurnal and seasonal noise fluctuations, with positive identification of critical compliance times, conditions, and causes.
Interior 3-D building noise modelling techniques developed in-house, accurately model the behaviour of sound inside buildings, large and small, ensuring cost effective design and layouts for noise controls. Design of architectural acoustics of studios, halls, churches and auditoriums, with in-house complex 3D modelling. Design of auditoria and assistance with correcting poor acoustics in existing halls, shops and taverns.
Design of entire building structures and panelling systems for optimum noise control with timely correction of potential weaknesses through early identification.
Laboratory quality Sound Intensity measurement systems used in-the-field; taking instruments to problems, not problems to instruments, permitting examination of individual processes amidst the din of fully operating plants.
Noise and vibration compliance testing to Australian (AS, BCA), contract and international standards (ISO). Field testing of building components (AS, ISO).
Noise source tracing and identification in complex machinery layouts. Real-time frequency analysis and sound intensity techniques locating and identifying elusive noise pathways.
Domestic and multi-dwelling construction, assessment of transport, environmental noise impact, and construction noise.
Machines of all sizes reliably tested prior to installation.
Quiet Product research and development using sophisticated instrumentation and in-house computer programming.
Comprehensive field testing of mobile equipment and vehicles to the highest engineering and laboratory standards.
Complete hearing conservation surveys and workplace noise management strategies.
Assessment and control of entertainment noise including monitoring, design and implementation assistance.
All regulatory acoustic reporting including Council, EPA, Liquor Administration Board and WorkCover requirements.
Expert evidence and peer review
