Noise Surveys

Operational Noise Surveys

construction noiseOperational noise surveys in Manchester are often required to establish the level of noise associated with the operation of an item of equipment or a particular activity. Examples of where this may be required include:

  • Building services plant items;
  • Loading bays and distribution hubs;
  • Entertainment venues;
  • Industrial premises;
  • Sports facilities.

This data may then be used in subsequent noise impact assessments for proposed developments or to demonstrate compliance with noise requirements. Lighthouse Acoustics are able to advise on the most appropriate type of noise survey required and are able to offer a quick turnaround of both survey and report.

Environmental Noise Surveys

Background or ambient environmental noise levels often need to be established prior to a development commencing in order to assess the impact of the development upon existing noise sensitive receptors or the impact upon the development itself. Examples of where this may be required include:

  • Residential developments;
  • Retail & Leisure developments;
  • Commercial developments;
  • Educational developments;
  • Health care developments;
  • Industrial developments;
  • Transportation links;
  • Renewable energy installations.

Depending on the proposals and site location either a manned survey over critical periods or an unmanned survey over a 24 hour or weekend period may be required.

Demolition & Construction Noise Monitoring

Noise monitoring during demolition or construction works is often required to demonstrate compliance with noise requirements at noise sensitive receptors. Depending on the nature of the works short term or long term monitoring may be appropriate.
