  • Case Study: Glastonbury Festival - Noise Monitoring At Glastonbury Festival

    In 1970, an entrance fee of just 1.00 would have permitted you, and about another 1500 'free spirits' to enjoy a weekend of listening to the likes of Quintessence, Marc Bolan and T-Rex, while at the same time savouring the undoubted 'delights' of free raw milk!! Almost three decades later, and at slightly greater expense, you and over 100,000 other people can now enjoy the delights and unique ...

  • Noise monitoring system appeals to Reno-Tahoe Airport`s neighbours

    Noise monitoring and reduction has been top priority for Krys Bart ever since she took the helm of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA) a decade ago. As RTAA president and CEO, Bart wants Reno-Tahoe International Airport to be a ‘good neighbour’, as it serves more than 4.4 million domestic and international passengers each year. The airport’s location right in the centre of ...
