Planning Consultants: DLP Planning
Whilst better zoning during the planning process has been largely successful in moving new industrial facilities away from residential areas, the recent surge in distribution depots and pressures on land supplies has meant that it is increasingly common for industrial facilities to be located near a sensitive receptor.
Industrial & Infrastructure projects can require a wide range of acoustic services, from assessing the environmental impact of proposed facilities through to evaluating and reducing employee noise exposure levels inside buildings. We have extensive experience of this type of assessment in line with the relevant standards and guidance such as BS4142:2014 and the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005.

Cass Allen carried out detailed noise monitoring to assess noise emissions from a commercial waste transfer centre affecting a nearby residential development.
The waste transfer centre is located on a working wharf on the Isle of Dogs and is the primary facility of its type utilised by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It was necessary to establish a detailed understanding of operations at the waste transfer centre, particularly as noise emissions from the site vary significantly depending on tidal movements and because an adjacent residential tower development directly overlooks the site.
Project: Crownhill Crematorium, Milton Keynes
Client: Milton Keynes Council
Architects: Architecture MK
Main Contractors: Kier Marriott
Our brief was to ensure that the acoustics of this new £6.2m crematorium would be at least as good as the existing crematorium, which was regarded as having excellent acoustics. We surveyed the existing crematorium to develop design criteria for the new building, based on the existing but upgraded where feasible and economically viable…Read More
Client: Highways Agency
Engineers: Mott Macdonald
To develop a monitoring and modelling programme prior and after construction of this 7.5km bypass. The purpose was to assess the noise impact of the new bypass on dwellings along the route, to mitigate disturbance and to provide data with which to defend noise compensation claims.
Client: Lafarge Aggregates
To negotiate planning noise criteria with the Council in accordance with MPS2 and BS8233, and then demonstrate through surveys that the criteria were being achieved at nearby dwellings.
Client: Volvo UK
Project Managers: Cushman & Wakefield
To establish the acoustic feasibility of relocating the main Volvo Training and Development Centre to within their main office HQ. This presented a series of acoustic challenges due to the construction of the building and the high noise levels associated with some of the vehicle repair training courses.
