Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need an acoustic consultant? If you need expert advice on noise, sound, or vibration issues, a qualified acoustic consultant or professionally registered company will be able to advise on the best course of action for your project. They will also ensure you adhere to any legal and planning requirements, British Standards, and noise-related architectural and mechanical requirements.
When should an acoustic consultant get involved in my project? It’s best to seek professional advice from an acoustic consultant for all building projects or noise nuisance issues as works often need to comply with local planning regulations in a wide range of sectors such as homes, offices, schools, colleges, universities, music schools, auditoria, theatres, concert halls, museums, libraries, churches, gyms etc. An acoustic consultant can provide guidance on small, medium or large scale projects including (but not limited to) new builds, refurbishments or conversions of architectural buildings and can advise on internal partitions, façade elements, glazing requirements, noise from mechanical services internally and from the environment to comply with planning requirements.
What planning and building regulations can an acoustic consultant help with? Some areas that an acoustic consultant can advise on are the discharge of planning conditions, planning applications and building control matters.
What does an acoustic consultant do? Acoustic consultants use noise and vibration monitoring equipment and software to measure and assess noise, vibration, airborne and impact sound to design spaces, mitigate noise issues while ensuring legal and planning regulations are met.
Can an acoustic consultant help with soundproofing? Yes acoustic consultants can provide advice on a range of options to best suit clients’ budgets and acoustic outcomes
Do acoustic consultants just work with architects? Not always, smaller projects may not require architectural input
Will my architect take care of my acoustic requirements? In architect-led projects, an acoustic consultant forms part of the wider team and both parties work together to meet clients’ desired acoustic outcomes and legal requirements
Do acoustic consultants just work on new buildings? No, acoustic consultants work on new, refurbishment, conversion or restoration projects
Will an acoustic consultant be able to help with external noise? Yes, it is very common for acoustic consultants to monitor and assess external environmental noise – for example from roads, railways, planes, construction sites and air conditioning units. Acoustic consultants recommend mitigation measures to reduce noise levels internally for existing buildings or recommend facade element specifications (external walls, windows, roof, means of ventilation) for new buildings.
