There are a wide variety of noise surveys depending on your situation. You may need a survey to predict noise for a planning application or measure existing noise to protect sensitive receivers. Either way you’re probably trying to find out how much a noise survey is going to cost.
When you call Clover we advise you on the exact type of survey you require and give you a free no obligation straightforward quotation. We outline exactly what we’ll do in the quotation so you know just what you’re paying for. Some typical noise surveys we carry out across the UK are:
Usually required when introducing a new noise source near to residential receivers. The assessment rates the likelihood of complaints. This could be an assessment for noise sources such as a new factory, air conditioning equipment, kitchen extract systems, plant and machinery.
Residential Planning and Noise When applying for a new residential scheme your planning application may require an assessment of noise affecting the proposed site. Typically the types of noise sources which could affect your development would be nearby roads, railways or airports. Our report would survey the existing site and recommend mitigation methods to protect future occupiers from external noise and to help your project through the planning process.
On long term construction projects you may have a requirement to monitor construction noise and vibration as part of the considerate constructors’ scheme or for Local Authority specific conditions under a Section 60 notice or Section 61 Agreement. We can provide noise monitoring for long term monitoring projects across the UK.
As an employer you are required to comply with ‘The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005′. This service will assess your employees risk to exposure from noise and provide recommendations to reducing this risk. From a Health and Safety and insurance point of view this assessment is a “must have”. It protects both you and your employees. Call Clover for more information.
