Environmental Noise Assessment

Our primary expertise is in the area of environmental noise. Our research in this field has led to the development of a stand-alone system based on virtual instrumentation (computer software) that can be used to record and then analyse the severity of nuisance noise.

The SpectroAcoustic Meter (SAM) unit has been acquired by local authorities as a way to quantify levels of environmental noise and use the resulting data as evidence to enforce local noise regulations.
We recognise that it is not in the interests of all local authorities to purchase their own SAM unit, and so we offer assessment and analysis as services as an alternative to the SAM devices.
