Umwelt has extensive experience in the assessment of noise impact on residential and other noise sensitive areas.
Assessments are commonly undertaken for commercial and industrial activities, transport, heavy industry, extractive industries and mining related activities. We provide practical solutions that enable developments to operate in complex, noise sensitive environments.
Umwelt manages noise impacts in the most cost-effective way by working with clients to identify appropriate acoustic solutions. These include modelling assessment monitoring; equipment selection; buffer distances; barriers; and building design components.
Our Knowledge Benefits You
Umwelt has a detailed knowledge of assessment processes, regulatory policies and objectives, and statutory and legislative compliance requirements. We ensure that all aspects of noise related issues are addressed.
Techniques, Skills and Equipment
We have developed sophisticated noise modelling techniques to enable the complex interactions between dynamic noise sources, changing meteorological conditions and sensitive areas to be assessed. Umwelt has the skills and equipment to measure, identify and quantify the acoustic impact that commercial and industrial activities have on residential and other noise sensitive areas.
Noise Management and Monitoring Plans
Drawing on our specialist knowledge of the acoustic environment, Umwelt can develop and implement site specific Noise Management Plans (NMP) tailored to the consent requirements of individual operations.
