Building Acoustics



Environmental Acoustics


Noise Impact Assessments

An assessment to satisfy planning applications and to advise and evaluate existing noise levels in and around development sites; noise impacting upon the development; and noise impact of the development on the surrounding area

Vibration Measurements

Determine any potential impacts of vibration on a development. Acoustic Consultants can provide advice on how, if any, the sources of vibration may affect occupants or the buildings

Pre-Application Site Assessments

Assist with planning applications to ensure compliance with conditions. It may also be necessary to carry out these surveys to discharge a planning condition following planning approval being granted

Post Completion Environmental Noise Measurements

For final compliance, a post completion assessment ensures noise measurements are at the required level and compliance has been met







Specialist Acoustic Software

Through innovative, computer-based technology, Stroma Built Environment utilise Acoustic Modelling and Virtual Project Scenarios to undertake calculations and predictions. We can advise on the acoustic performance of your developments to minimise noise impact and ensure high levels of occupier comfort. We use your proposed project details to calculate the environmental noise breakout, ambient noise level and internal acoustic environment and can construct virtual street scenes to predict the effect your development will have on the surrounding noise environment.
