Noise & Vibration
Our noise and vibration team provides authoritative assessments, analyses, and design recommendations to address potential noise and vibration impacts in accordance with federal, state, and local regulations.
We prepare noise assessments that inform and guide clients as they embark on the planning and design phases of their projects, aiding in configurations and improvements. Using sophisticated monitoring equipment, we validate noise and vibration prediction models, evaluate noise management and abatement, and model existing and future noise environments across all market sectors. Once noise levels and their sources have been determined, our experts devise impact mitigation measures such as sound walls and sound isolation tactics.
