This is the engineering of systems, materials and technologies to control noise from mechanical, electrical, and elevator systems as appropriate throughout a building, and noise emission to neighbours. We advise the project engineers on how to cost-effectively control noise generation and transmission, including the following:

  • Heating, ventilation, plumbing, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems
  • Electrical and lighting systems – transformer and lighting noise, cooling fans
  • Performance lighting and projection system noise

On performing arts facilities, we guide the design and construction ensuring the auditoria, stage, and studios are very quiet – so the artists can create deep silence and meaningful impact with their work. This involves collaboration with the architect and all the engineers.
