Building services noise

We advise on all aspects of building services noise. This includes siting of central plant zones and providing strategic advice in relation to main items of plant, plant room constructions and noise to atmosphere.

We also advise on the control of noise in air conditioning systems, including:

  • assessment of duct borne noise
  • duct breakout noise
  • airflow velocity generated noise, noise from room units such as fan coil units (FCUs) and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR)
  • self generated noise
  • water and plumbing noise.

The services we provide cover design, measurement, specification, simulation and testing of mechanical services equipment and products. We work closely with manufacturers in developing low noise products and have carried out extensive investigation of noise from MVHR systems and FCUs.
