Acoustic requirements and design can have a lasting impact on how a transport project is ultimately developed.

In the case of road ways and rail, environmental acoustic assessments can direct the choice of a final transport corridor as well as the shape and design of noise barriers. Acoustic considerations can also steer the day to day operations of an airport including curfews. Transport hubs including train stations, ports and airport terminals present their own unique acoustic objectives and challenges including compliance with local noise regulations, logistics optimization and design of internal public spaces. Our team has strong experience with the measurement, assessment, prediction and impact assessment of noise for transport projects including:

  • Expert witness and legal testimony
  • Noise Management Plans
  • Building acoustics design for transport hubs
  • Environmental noise modelling using SoundPlan and INM
