Acoustic Consulting Services
Innova's acoustical engineers and consultants bring specialized knowledge and expertise to investigate and solve noise issues at industrial facilities.
Our Acoustical Consulting Services
Ambient Surveys - Performing short or long duration sound level surveys to document the existing noise environment in terms of Ldn, Leq, L10, or any other descriptors required by applicable regulations.
Regulatory Review - Analyzing and interpreting all applicable ordinances.
Noise Impact Assessments - Preparing the acoustical sections of environmental impact statements.
Occupational Noise Exposure - Monitoring in the workplace to quantify workers exposure to noise (dosimetry) and creation of workplace noise maps around stationary noise sources in industrial facilities to aid reduction strategies.
Acoustical Compliance- Investigating compliance with noise by-laws, codes and ordinances; developing testing procedures; conducting and reporting the compliance survey.
Noise Prediction - Predicting noise levels from existing and future planned facilities or sites using mathematical and empirical modeling techniques.
Specification Development - Review of vendor equipment noise levels and development of the equipment noise level specifications for purchasing purposes.
Design and Implementation of Noise Control- Modeling of cost-effective mitigation options, performing the detailed engineering, preparing as-built or fabrication drawings, and installing the noise control.
Expert Testimony- Supporting clients at public hearings and open houses with acoustical engineering expertise.
With hundreds of successfully completed noise surveys and modeling assignments worldwide, we have gained a solid reputation for our quality industrial noise control.
