Our aviation noise team’s philosophy is to develop relationships that result in “clients for life.”

We provide all-encompassing noise modeling, assessment, and reporting services in accordance with federal, state, and local regulations. We communicate effectively and work collaboratively with airports, communities, and aircraft operators and agencies, resulting in an end product that everyone can be proud of.

Our technical capabilities and unique knowledge of complex issues facing airports today make us the premier choice to partner with our clients to strategize, develop consistent messaging, and determine implementable solutions to address aircraft noise issues.

We have provided comprehensive support to develop, maintain, monitor, and enhance airports’ noise compatibility efforts for more than 40 years, and our airports group currently has on-call contracts for more than 80 airports throughout the United States. Our noise experience includes complex projects at some of the busiest commercial airports in the country, including LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy, Los Angeles, Hollywood Burbank, Seattle-Tacoma, Portland, San Francisco, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta, San Antonio,  Orlando, Miami, and Fort Lauderdale airports. We have also provided noise studies for some of the busiest general aviation airports including Naples, Van Nuys, Aspen, and Teterboro airports.
