Development of solutions to achieve speech privacy and the isolation from unwanted sounds created by human, mechanical or other sources. Designs address room acoustics and the creation of good listening/speech intelligibility environments. Projects include commercial, multifamily residential, institutional, educational, industrial and recreational facilities. Audio/visual systems and facilities are also designed and specified.
The primary consideration is the control of noise from industrial operations which may influence the work environment. Solutions include work station placement, barriers, machine retrofit, enclosures and room treatment.
The focus is source identification and/or recommendations for the control of individual noise sources, e.g., industrial plant, airport, railroad, highway, etc., which affect the surrounding outdoor environment. Solutions include design and specification of berms, barriers and site orientation. Environmental assessment/impact reports are prepared and as requested, presented in expert witness testimony.
