What we believe in. What we are convinced of. What sets us apart.
Noise is one of the highest environmental burdens in the industrialized countries.
Therefore, we have made it our business to contribute to a quieter and healthier environment.
With our professional noise simulation software, we offer the best and most innovative tool for solving noise problems. Whether traffic, industrial and leisure noise or room acoustics: we have an efficient and suitable solution for the most diverse noise problems.
Professional, high-quality, innovative: Your noise experts from SoundPLAN
Professional, high-quality and innovative - this is our work standard and the motivation of our teams, most of whose members have been with our company for many years. This is an indication that our highly qualified physicists, engineers, computer scientists and geographers are well-attuned to each other and work closely together in software development, in the preparation of expert reports or in supporting our customers.
We ensure our high-quality standards, among other things, by often using two-person teams that support and control each other, benefit from joint know-how and thus work efficiently and in a solution-oriented way.
Think big - worldwide and across borders
In addition, we do not live on theory alone. Our team thinks beyond the borders of countries and their guidelines and is in constant exchange with experts in the field of noise protection around the world.
The daily feedback from our customers gives us the opportunity to react flexibly and to constantly improve and develop our software further.
Our strength: Less noise - more quality of life
Municipal administrations, immission control officers, engineering offices and architects benefit from our many years of experience as a market leader for professional noise simulation software, not only in Germany but on a global scale.
Our customers trust our expert knowledge when it comes to the important environmental issues of noise protection, because we do everything to reduce noise and improve people's quality of life. This is what our name stands for: SoundPLAN.
SoundPLAN GmbH is an innovative software company and engineering firm active in the fields of noise control, noise mapping, occupational health and safety and room acoustics. The SoundPLAN prediction software, which we have successfully developed and used worldwide for over 30 years, is the basis of our success. Our team of 22 employees works hand in hand - whether in software development, customer support, expert opinions or global marketing.
Development and innovation
To allow our customers to work on their tasks as efficiently as possible, we are always looking for the best and most innovative solutions in software development.
As surveyors, we carry out complex investigations from all areas of environmental and room acoustics. This includes, for example, planning within the framework of the 16th BImSchV, development plans, noise remediation, approval procedures according to TA-Lärm, noise action plans, noise quota allocation, determination of the relevant external noise levels according to DIN 4109-3:2016/2018, and aircraft noise investigations.
If you need help in a special field, we are also happy to offer parts of a report as a calculation service.
Attractive working environment
We offer an exciting working environment with flat hierarchies and short information and decision paths. Good working relationships among the co-workers and our regular team events additionally foster a sense of community.
Teamwork & Cohesion
Teamwork and cohesion are very important to us. We strengthen this cohesion through regular activities such as joint lunches, yoga and other events.
In the early days of noise protection, expert noise reports were still processed with a pocket calculator.
Due to their interest in computers, Dipl.-Ing. Gert Braunstein and Arne Berndt, while working in an engineering office, came up with the idea that these calculations could be made easier with the help of a computer program. They put the idea into practice, with Gert Braunstein working on the technical side, and Arne Berndt on the programming.
They soon founded their own business, the 'Engineering company for environmental protection - traffic planning - data processing Gert Braunstein Arne Berndt', in the house of Gert Braunstein in Leutenbach, Germany.
Reliable products and services have been established as a standard in our office because we place the highest demands on ourselves - both individually and as a team. Our management and corporate principles stand for this:
- We are a guarantor for high-quality software and expert reports in the field of environmental protection.
- We maintain our reputation as a customer-oriented software manufacturer both nationally and internationally through personal commitment.
- We build on our strengths - not on the weaknesses of our competitors.
- We are constantly renewing and expanding our professional competence.
- We help our customers quickly, competently, uncomplicatedly, and in a friendly and courteous way.
- We work with a high degree of personal responsibility and efficiency.
- We value our employees as the most important resource of our company. We actively promote their health and well-being at work.
Our studies should convince through competence and precise technical elaboration.
The software we develop and its maintenance / support should meet the requirements of our customers and be continuously updated to conform to the newest standards and guidelines. Requirements raised by the customer should be implemented promptly and with the highest possible quality.
The aim of our training courses is to provide participants with a high level of knowledge and experience in a pleasant atmosphere.
